CSC326 Object Oriented Programming 1 / 7 1 Agenda • Classes and Objects • Classes and Attributes • Classes and Methods • Operator Overloading • Inheritance 2 Classes and Objects • We have seen built-in types • User defined types: class • Example: point in 2-D space class Point( object ) : """reprsents a point in 2-D space""" • header: indicates a new class with name "Point" • header: indicates the class is a kind of "object", a built-in type • body: a docstring explaining what the class is for >>> print Point < class ’__main__.Point’ > • Class is a factory of objects Call Point() to create instance as if it were a function returns a "reference" to a Point object >>> blank = Point() >>> print blank <__main__.Point instance at 0xb7e9d2ac> • Note Point instance and Point class is NOT the same thing >>> print type(blank) < class ’__main__.Point’ > • Attributes Each object has named elementes, called attributes (or fields) In python, attribuites are introduced by use (with dot notation), not by declaration (C++)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
