mul(lhs: Any, rhs: Any, default: Any = (, )) → Any¶
Returns lhs * rhs, or else a default if the operator is not implemented.This method is mostly used by pow methods trying to returnNotImplemented instead of causing a TypeError.
- lhs – Left hand side of the multiplication.
- rhs – Right hand side of the multiplication.
- default – Default value to return if the multiplication is not defined. If not default is specified, a type error is raised when the multiplication fails.
The product of the two inputs, or else the default value if the product is not defined, or else raises a TypeError if no default is defined.
TypeError– lhs doesn’t have __mul__ or it returned NotImplemented AND lhs doesn’t have __rmul__ or it returned NotImplemented AND a default value isn’t specified.
