issues with classes in Python

Recommended Posts

hello dear Experts 

i am going to create a Phonebook class

efforts and parts: Design a Python class for a Phonebook. You class should have the following methods - see the little list that i have to implement: 

init (self): creates an empty list to store names and numbers
Add(self, name, number): adds the name and number to the list
Display(self): displays the entire phonebook.
Find(self, name): this should find and also do the print of the number in the little phonebook that is associated with the name

last but not least i want to add more stuff: eg. 
Add a main() method that ddoes more - eg. to the script that adds a couple of new phone entries and calls the display() and besides of this additionaly find() methods to see if they work.

so far so good: That's the sum of ideas i want to implement. to go further -. what was done this code and I'm not entirely sure where to go from there.

class Phonebook:
	def __init__(self):
    pass
def add(self,name, number):
    self.name=name
    self.numbers=number
	def getName(self):
    return self.name
def getNumber(self):
    return self.number
	def find(self, name):
    a = raw_input("What is their First Name?")
    return(self,name)
     
def display(self):
    return display
def main(): phone1 = Phonebook("foo bar", 13345444234214) phone2 = Phonebook("foo bar", 13345444234214)
print(display())
if name == 'main': main()


well  what was done this code and I'm not entirely sure where to go from there.

one question: can someone give me some hints - I've tried looking in books and tried to find out how to use the add function and, 
The question is: how to incorpoate find and display in the def main function. Thanks


i guess that 

__init__(self): creates an empty list to store names and numbers
def __init__(self):
    pass

    That does not do what the instructions want.

Also:

def getName(self):
    return self.name
def getNumber(self):
    return self.number
	

 
   
should i  really use getters in python?
