defaultdict(default_factory) --> dict with default factory

The default factory is called without arguments to produce a new value when a key is not present, in __getitem__ only. A defaultdict compares equal to a dict with the same items.

Instance Methods [hide private]
a shallow copy of D.
__copy__(D)
 
__getattribute__(...)
x.__getattribute__('name') <==> x.name
new empty dictionary

__init__(...)
x.__init__(...) initializes x; see x.__class__.__doc__ for signature
 
__missing__(...)
__missing__(key) # Called by __getitem__ for missing key; pseudo-code: if self.default_factory is None: raise KeyError((key,)) self[key] = value = self.default_factory() return value
 
__reduce__(...)
Return state information for pickling.
 
__repr__(x)
repr(x)
a shallow copy of D.
