Prerequisites: Constructors in C++
In C++, We can have more than one constructor in a class with same name, as long as each has a different list of arguments.This concept is known as Constructor Overloading and is quite similar to function overloading.
- Overloaded constructors essentially have the same name (name of the class) and different number of arguments.
- A constructor is called depending upon the number and type of arguments passed.
- While creating the object, arguments must be passed to let compiler know, which constructor needs to be called.
