Overloading the "and" operator

I am trying to overload the "and" operatior, but my __and__ method is
never called. The code look like this:

class Filter:
column = ""
operator = ""
value = ""

def __init__(self, col, op, val):
self.column = col
self.operator = op
self.value = val

def toString(self):
return self.column + " " + self.operator + " " + self.value

def __and__(self, other):
print "And"
return And(self, other)
class And:
lFilter = None
rFilter = None

def __init__(self, l, r):
self.lFilter = l
self.rFilter = r

def toString(self):
return "(" + self.lFilter.to String() + ") and (" +
self.rFilter.to String() + ")"
f1 = Filter("name", "=", "Kalle")
f2 = Filter("city", "=", "LA")
andFilter = (f1 and f2)
print andFilter.toStr ing()

What is wrong with this code? The result when I run the script is
"city = LA". The AndFilter is never created.

__and__ overloads the "&" operator. The "and" keyword cannot be overloaded.

I've been programming in python for a few months now - and returning to programming after a gap of about ten years I've really enjoyed learning python. I've just made my first forays into inheritance and operator overloading (both concepts that I initially found hard to grasp). I've written a simple config file parser - and I thought I'd experiment with making the interface easier by subclassing dict and overloading the __setitem__,...

Hello, I am playing around with operator overloading and inheritence, specifically overloading the + operator in the base class and its derived class. The structure is simple: the base class has two int memebers "dataA", "dataB". The derived class has an additional int member "dataC". I am simply trying to overload the + operator so that 'adding' two objects will sum up the corresponding int members.

I am working on a new library for my own use that would allow me to use SI Units and to convert them back and forth with ease. However, While I have been working on operator overloading, I have come accross a problem: If I want to be able to simplify units through operators, I end up with inter-dependant classes.

Hi, is there a simple way to use operators overloaded in some class for objects of a derived class? In my example I have a class Matrix that represents 2x2 matrices, and I overloaded operator= and operator+ for this class. Then there is a derived class DiagonalMatrix which represents diagonal 2x2-matrices. Now I would like to use the operators = and + also for the diagonal matrices, but the naive way doesn't work:

hi all experts, i was just thinking about making overloaded operators virtual. i was wordering what could be the implications of such scenarios. i will be thankful if somebody can provide point out some general issues in making overloaded virtual or point me to some resource having explaination about the same.

Why can I overload operator== and operator!= separately having different implementations and additionally I can override equals() also having a different implementation. Why not forbid overloading of == and != but instead translate each call of objA==objB automatically in System.Object.Equals(objA, objB). This would remove inconsistencies like myString1==myString2

Here is my problem: I have a base class A with operator<< defined to take a template parameter and append the parameter to a output string stream (ostringstream). I have a derived class B, which inherits from A and defines a pure virtual output operator<< taking as a parameter an enumeration type 'Command' (which is defined in B itself). The point of the 'Command' enumeration is to have a different implementation of operator<< when...

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

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
