The new module allows an interface to the interpreter object creation functions. This is for use primarily in marshal-type functions, when a new object needs to be created ``magically'' and not by using the regular creation functions. This module provides a low-level interface to the interpreter, so care must be exercised when using this module. It is possible to supply non-sensical arguments which crash the interpreter when the object is used.
The new module defines the following functions:
None, a new, empty dictionary is created for the new instance. Note that there are no guarantees that the object will be in a consistent state.
|function, instance, class)|
None. function must be callable.
|code, globals[, name[, argdefs[, closure]]])|
None. If it is a string, the function will have the given name, otherwise the function name will be taken from
code.co_name. If argdefs is given, it must be a tuple and will be used to determine the default values of parameters. If closure is given, it must be
Noneor a tuple of cell objects containing objects to bind to the names in
|argcount, nlocals, stacksize, flags, codestring, constants, names, varnames, filename, name, firstlineno, lnotab)|
|name, baseclasses, dict)|
