Finding a class' superclasses

How do I find a class' immediate superclasses?
That is, given
class A: pass
class B(A): pass
class C(A): pass
class D(B, C): pass
I want a function foo where foo(D) or foo(D()) returns (B, C).
(Well, the order of the classes is not important.)

Aah. Thanks. And now that I know what to look for, I see it right
where it's supposed to be and where I didn't see it last time in the
Python reference:-)

Does anybody know how I can loop through all the properties in a class I have created? Can I use Me to refer to the properties? I'm using VB6. Many thanks.

Hi, I need to traverse the methods defined in a class and its superclasses. This is the code I'm using: # An instance of class B should be able to check all the methods defined in B #and A, while an instance of class C should be able to check all methods #defined in C, B and A. #------------------------------------------------

Hi ! I am a poor mortal who has become terrified of Python. It seems to have thrown all the OO concepts out of the window. Penniless, I ask a basic question : What is the difference between a class and a function in Python ??? Consider the following code fragments : # Fragment 1 begins a = 1

There is something with initializing mutable class attributes that I am struggling with. I'll use an example to explain: class Father: attr1=None # this is OK attr2= # this is wrong def foo(self, data): self.attr1=data self.attr2.append(data) The initialization of attr1 is obviously OK, all instances of Father redefine it in the method foo. But the initialization of attr2 is wrong

Hi, I have a class with various class-level variables which are used to store global state information for all instances of a class. These are set by a classmethod as in the following (in reality the setcvar method is more complicated than this!): class sup(object): cvar1 = None cvar2 = None

Hi all I noticed something strange here while explaining decorators to someone. Not any real use code, but I think it's worth mentioning. When I access a class attribute, on a class with a custom metaclass with a __getattribute__ method, the method is used when acessing some attribute directly with the class object, but not when you do it from the instance.

Hey Im new to c++, so bear with me. I'm used to other OO languages, where it is possible to have class-level initialization functions, that initialize the CLASS rather than an instance of it. Like, for instance the Objective-C method: +(void)initialize Which has the following characteristics: It is guaranteed to be run

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents.
