Hi everybody,
could you please assist me to create a class in with some properties?
I want to create two communication channel (paths) and want to call on the basis of their properties.
data_rate = 10 mbps
delay = 250 ms
loss rate = 1%
data_rate = 1.5mbps
delay = 50 ms
loss rate = 1%
could anyone please help me to have somesuggestion to make a class or list with these properties please.
Thank you in advance.

Thank you very much for you reply.
As well as could you please tell me that if I want to call those 2 different channel regarding my coding, do I need to call them differently?
I mean is it possible to keep those 2 channel properties in a same class like 'struct'.
As well as could you please help me, how can I call a class to a function?
Thank you in advance.

classes and structures are two different things. It doesn't sound like you fully understand OOP so I recommend you read the documentation and possibly grab a book.
You can create as many instances of the class as you want and name it whatever you want:
path1 = comm_channel;
path2 = comm_channel;
You can create class methods (function). In fact, if your class has no method, it's very much pointless (unless it's a base class for other classes). If you don't have class methods, then indeed a structure would be simpler.

Thank you Guillaume,
truely speaking, I am not very much familiar with OOP.
actually I want to create path1 and path2 with those properties (data rate, delay, loss rate) individually so when I will use anyone of them with a formula then it will automatically take those properties.
for path1,
path1.bandwidth = window size/ delay %window size is predetermined value
so when I will call path1 it will automatically assign the values to the formula. and same for path2.
thank you again.
