Issues with classes in Python

#1

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 assignment we have to do. 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:

[code]def getName(self):
return self.name
def getNumber(self):
return self.number

[/code]

should i really use getters in python?
