Alternatively, the constructor accepts a sequence of key-value pairs as a parameter, as in dict(pairs) with pairs = [( ga , Irish ), ( de , German )]. Chapter 1. 3 Expressions, Operators, and Precedence In the previous section, we demonstrated how names can be used to identify existing objects, and how literals and constructors can be used to create instances of built-in classes. Existing values can be combined into larger syntactic expressions using a variety of special symbols and keywords known as operators.

However, it is possible for a type to redefine such semantics to mutate the object, as the list class does for the += operator. alpha = [1, 2, 3] beta = alpha beta += [4, 5] beta = beta + [6, 7] print(alpha) # # # # an alias for alpha extends the original list with two more elements reassigns beta to a new list [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7] will be [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] This example demonstrates the subtle difference between the list semantics for the syntax beta += foo versus beta = beta + foo. 3. 1 Compound Expressions and Operator Precedence Programming languages must have clear rules for the order in which compound expressions, such as 5 + 2 3, are evaluated.

Identifiers data and target are formal parameters defined within the local scope of the count function. The communication of a return value from the function back to the caller is similarly implemented as an assignment. Therefore, with our sample invocation of prizes = count(grades, A ), the identifier prizes in the caller’s scope is assigned to the object that is identified as n in the return statement within our function body. An advantage to Python’s mechanism for passing information to and from a function is that objects are not copied.
