Python - Alternate to Multiple Constructors
I have given here python program that explains possible alternatives to multiple Constructors with default arguments. In the init function, __init__ along with the function signature, you can specify a default value to be used. This class example would act as a default constructor and parameterized constructor.
This code is tested with Python version 2.6
class CEmployee: age = 0 name = "" def __init__ (self, name="unassigned", age=-1): self.name = name self.age = age def PrintRecord(self): print self.name, self.age s1 = CEmployee() s2 = CEmployee("Kathir", 33) s1.PrintRecord() s2.PrintRecord() #output #unassigned -1 #kathir 33
