The command that is used to copy an object in python includes:
- copy.copy() function: This makes a copy of the file from source to destination. It returns a shallow copy of the parameter that is passed.
- copy.deepcopy(): This also creates a copy of the object from source to destination. It returns a deep copy of the parameter that is passed to the function.
The dictionary consists of all the objects and the copy() method which is used as:
newdict = olddict.copy()
The assignment statement doesn’t copy any object but it creates a binding between the target and the object that is used for the mutable items. Copy is required to keep a copy of it using the modules that is provided to give generic and shallow operations.
