An interesting way to implement an abstract base class

This one made me smile. From:


class Queue:
"""Queue is an abstract class/interface. There are three types:
Stack(): A Last In First Out Queue.
FIFOQueue(): A First In First Out Queue.
PriorityQueue(l t): Queue where items are sorted by lt, (default
Each type supports the following methods and functions:
q.append(item) -- add an item to the queue
q.extend(items) -- equivalent to: for item in items:
q.pop() -- return the top item from the queue
len(q) -- number of items in q (also q.__len())
Note that isinstance(Stac k(), Queue) is false, because we implement
as lists. If Python ever gets interfaces, Queue will be an

def __init__(self):

def extend(self, items):
for item in items: self.append(ite m)

Hi, I think my problem is indeed "how to implement something like java's final in C++" The long version.... I have an abstract base class which is inherited by several concrete classes. I have a group of methods that I'd like to implement in the base class

What is the rationale behind the decision not to allow abstract static class members? It doesn't seem like it's a logically contradictory concept, or that the implementation would be difficult or near-impossible. It seems like it would be useful. In fact, there's a place in my code that I could make good use of it. So why not? Chris

I am using CodeDOM to generate source files. The classes being generated have a const string member. This member is referenced in an abstract base class but declared in the inheriting class. I can't declare the string in the abstract class because it would require initialization. Is there a way to require that any class inheriting from the base class contain this string without a specific declaration in the base class? I tried putting a...

I have a class which serve as a base class. I want to focuses all the classes derived from it implement a interface. Make it a abstract class is not a option since some XML serialization code need to initialize the class. is it possible? thanks

I'm running into trouble and I hope someone can help. I have two assemblies. The first defines a base class and a series of distinct classes based on the base class. Something similar too: // BASE CLASS public class PacketBase { public virtual bool PacketOnReceive() {

I had a need recently to check if my subclasses properly implemented the desired interface and wished that I could use something like an abstract base class in python. After reading up on metaclass magic, I wrote the following module. It is mainly useful as a light weight tool to help programmers catch mistakes at definition time (e.g., forgetting to implement a method required by the given interface). This is handy when unit tests or...

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

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,...

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers. The idea...
