Advanced C++ Inheritance Techniques for Effective Object-Oriented Programming

In Object Oriented Programming Inheritance is the process by which objects of one class acquire the properties and functionality of objects of another class. In the last tutorial on inheritance in C++ we developed a model using modes of transportation to illustrate the concept of inheritance. In this article we will use that model to illustrate some of the finer points of inheritance and what it can be used for.

The principle of inheritance is available with several modern programming languages and is handled slightly differently with each. C++ allows you to inherit all or part of the members and methods of a class, modify some, and add new ones not available in the parent class. You have complete flexibility, and as usual, the method used with C++ has been selected to result in the most efficient code execution.

C++ Memory Management

Everyone knows that memory management is a difficult and dangerous chore in C++. This series of three articles will show you that the conventional wisdom is not true. When approached correctly, C++’s seemingly archaic memory-management scheme actually provides an opportunity to create spectacular programs – programs that would not be possible with more modern languages that handle memory automatically.

Transitioning from C to C++: A Quick Guide for Novice Programmers

As we begin the study of C++ and object oriented programming, a few comments are in order to help you get started. Since the field of object oriented programming is probably new to you, you will find that there is a significant amount of new terminology for you to grasp. This is true of any new endeavor and you should be warned not to be intimidated by all of the new concepts.
