I have a class that only contains attributes and I would like packing/unpacking to work on it. What
def __init__(self, name, age, gender)
self.name = name
self.age = age
self.gender = gender
a, b, c = Item("Henry", 90, "male")
You can unpack any
Iterable. This means you need to implement the
__iter__ method, and return an iterator. In your case, this could simply be:
def __iter__(self): return iter((self.name, self.age, self.gender))
Alternatively you could make your class an
return self and you'd need to implement
__next__; this is more work, and probably not worth the effort.
