# cf.Constructs.shallow_copy¶

Constructs.shallow_copy(_ignore=None)[source]

Return a shallow copy.

f.shallow_copy() is equivalent to copy.copy(f).

Any in-place changes to the actual constructs of the copy will not be seen in the original Constructs object, and vice versa, but the copy is otherwise independent of its parent.
