Now, perhaps this not the best way write code, but I have a few questions regrading calling the super classes constructor:
I have a super class that accepts many arguments to it's constructor, and a subclass that should define one additional argument.
What's the most "pythonic" way to make this work?
def __init__(self, opt_1, opt_2, opt_3, opt_n):
# stuff done here
def __init__(self, just_a_sub_option): # what about other args? **args?
# do stuff with "just_a_sub_option"
MySuperClass.__init__() # Should this be first? What args to use? **args?
Basically, I'd like to avoid maintaining a verbose list of arguments in the subclass.
