Python object()

The object() function returns a featureless object which is a base for all classes.

The syntax of object() is:

o = object()

object() Parameters

The object() function doesn't accept any parameters.


Return Value from object()

The object() function returns a featureless object.


Example: How object() works?

test = object()

print(type(test))
print(dir(test))

Output

<class 'object'>
['__class__', '__delattr__', '__dir__', '__doc__', '__eq__', '__format__', '__ge__', '__getattribute__', '__gt__', '__hash__', '__init__', '__le__', '__lt__', '__ne__', '__new__', '__reduce__', '__reduce_ex__', '__repr__', '__setattr__', '__sizeof__', '__str__', '__subclasshook__']

Here, an object test is created.

In the program, we have used type() to get the type of the object.

Similarly, we have used dir() to get all the attributes. These attributes (properties and methods) are common to instances of all Python classes.
