I read a following sentence in the book Data structure and algorithm in Python:
A tour instance is created by sending a reference to a specific tree to the constructor, and then by calling the public 'executed' method, which beings the tour and returns a final result of the computation.
I am confused about the use of being. As I known, being can use in a present or past continuous tense as following:
- He is being nice.
- She was being bad.
But I don't know whether being can be used as a main verb like that. If can, does its meaning is same as it used in the present continuous tense?
