Not sure I get the rationale behind Kotlin’s primary constructor. It seems like it’s like the designated initializer, but it can’t contain code? That last restriction flummoxes me. WHY?
@uliwitness I don't know much about Kotlin, but I guess it's assumed that you won't need anything specific other than members initialization most of the time, so it's more «concise» without anything in the class «block».
I guess it's more a «type definition + optional init code execution» than a «constructor»
