Description

A constructorsynopsis contains the syntax summary of a constructor in an object-oriented programming language. Unlike a methodsynopsis, which it closely resembles, it may not identify a return type and the methodname is optional (in some languages, constructor names can be generated automatically).

Processing expectations

For the most part, the processing application is expected to generate all of the parentheses, semicolons, commas, and so on required in the rendered synopsis.
