  constructor
  
      1. In object-oriented languages, a function
     provided by a class to initialise a newly created object.  The
     constructor function typically has the same name as the class.  It
     may take arguments, e.g. to set various attributes of the object
     or it may just leave everything undefined to be set elsewhere.
  
     A class may also have a destructor function that is called when
     objects of the class are destroyed.

     symbols used to create an object with an algebraic data type.
