         |
        dict
Known Subclasses:

dict() -> new empty dictionary
dict(mapping) -> new dictionary initialized from a mapping object's
    (key, value) pairs
dict(iterable) -> new dictionary initialized as if via:
    d = {}
    for k, v in iterable:
        d[k] = v
dict(**kwargs) -> new dictionary initialized with the name=value pairs
    in the keyword argument list.  For example:  dict(one=1, two=2)

keys(D)
v, remove specified key and return the corresponding value
pop(D, k, d=...)
If key is not found, d is returned if given, otherwise KeyError is raised
(k, v), remove and return some (key, value) pair as a

__getattribute__(...)

 

x.__getattribute__('name') <==> x.name

Overrides: object.__getattribute__

__init__()
(Constructor)

 

x.__init__(...) initializes x; see help(type(x)) for signature

Returns:
new empty dictionary

Overrides: object.__init__

__new__(T, S, ...)

 
Returns: a new object with type S, a subtype of T
Overrides: object.__new__

__repr__(x)
(Representation operator)

 

repr(x)

Overrides: object.__repr__

__sizeof__(D)

 

size of object in memory, in bytes

Returns: size of D in memory, in bytes
Overrides: object.__sizeof__

update(D, E=..., **F)

 

Update D from dict/iterable E and F. If E present and has a .keys() method, does: for k in E: D[k] = E[k] If E present and lacks .keys() method, does: for (k, v) in E: D[k] = v In either case, this is followed by: for k in F: D[k] = F[k]

Returns: None
