Destructor in Python
- A Destructor is a function(method) which is used to deallocate memory of an object.
- The destructor method is executed when an object is destroyed.
__del__()is the destructor method in Python.
Destructors are not required in Python as they are in C++, because Python has a garbage collector that takes care of memory management automatically.
class A: def __del__(self): #body of the destructor
Here is an example of how to define a destructor in Python
class Data: def __init__(self): print("Constructor Called.Object Created") def __del__(self): print("Destructor Called.Object Destroyed") obj=Data()
Constructor Called.Object Created Destructor Called.Object Destroyed
