1: constructor is a member function of the class, with the name of the function being the same as the class name. It also specifies how the object should be initialized.


 Ways of calling constructor :


1) Implicitly : automatically by complier when an object is created.

2) Calling the constructors explicitly is possible, but it makes the code unverifiable.


2: class Point2D{

int x; int y;

public Point2D() : x(0) , y(0) {} //default (no argument) constructor



Point2D MyPoint; // Implicit Constructor call. In order to allocate memory on stack, the

default constructor is implicitly called.

Point2D * pPoint = new Point2D(); // Explicit Constructor call. In order to allocate memory

on HEAP we call the default constructor.
