computer science



Using the code in the file above as a starting point, add the functionality described below.

1. Modify the code to be encapsulated with private data attributes and read-only properties representing the name and balance. 

2. Modify the BankAccount class to enforce the requirement that the account's balance can never become negative. This means you should forbid negative deposits and any withdrawls that exceed the account's balance. 

3. Add a property to the BankAccount class named transaction_fee for a real number representing an amount of money to be deducted as a fee to the bank every time the user withdrawls money. The default value is $0.00, but the client can change the value. Deduct the transaction fee during every call to withdraw() but not from deposits. Make sure the balance cannot go negative during a withdrawl. If the withdrawl (amount plus transaction fee) would cause the account balance to become negative, do not modify the account balance. Instead, raise a custom error type (see here and here for more information). Your custom error should be defined as an inner class to BankAccount.

4. Add a __str__ method to the BankAccount class. This method should return a string that contains the account's name and balance separated by a comma and space. For example, if an account object named meriweather has the name Meriweather and a balance 0f $3.70, the call str(meriweather) should return the string "Meriweather, $3.70". 

5. Add a transfer method to the BankAccount class. The method should move money from the current bank account to another account. The method accepts two parameters aside from self: another instance of BankAccount and a real number for the amount of money to transfer. There is a $5 fee for transferring money that is to be deducted from the current account's balance before any transfer happens. The method should modify the two BankAccount objects such that the current object has its balance decreased by the given amount plus the $5 fee and the other account's balance is increased by the given amount. If the current account object does not have enough money to make the full transfer, transfer whatever money is left in the account after the $5 is deducted. If the account has under $5 or the amount to transfer is $0 or less, no transfer should occur and neither account's state should be modified.
