What is the difference between a constructor and a method?

  • A constructor is a member function of a class that is used to create objects of that class.
  • It has the same name as the class itself, has no return type, and is invoked using the new operator.
  • A method is an ordinary member function of a class.
  • It has its own name, a return type (which may be void), and is invoked using the dot operator.
