Python creates function objects for you when you use a def statement, or when you use a lambda expression:
We can assign attributes to the function object and retrieve them as follows
def foo(): pass foo.score = 20 print(type(foo)) print(foo.score) print(type(lambda x:x))
We get the following output
C:/Users/TutorialsPoint1/~.py <type 'function'> 20 <type 'function'>
Yes, python functions are full objects. They can have attributes and methods like objects. The functions can have data variables and even functions written inside of them.
