Greetings of the new year!
I was working with classes and I just realized that there is a piece of code which is being reused under several methods of this class. So, I want to take this reused piece of code and make it a function of it’s own. However, I don’t want this function to act like it is a method of this class, meaning it shouldn’t be accessible via the class object or it’s instances. Is there any way of writing a function like this? I’ll try to explain what I’m doing with code below:
class someName: def class_method_1(self): self.reused_function() # some other code def class_method_2(self): self.reused_function() def reused_function(self): # some code
So, is there a way to make this reused function not available to class object or any of it’s instances and just be used for internal purposes of the class?
Thank you for taking the time to read this question.
