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.

Inheritance in C++

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.

Polymorphism: Object Oriented Programming (OOP)

In OOP terms, polymorphism represents the ability to resolve a reference to an object’s method at run time. Specifically, different objects could make a call to a Draw or Print method, and these methods would act differently with each object; the process can take different forms behind a common interface. One of the benefits of polymorphism is that because the interface is common to objects, any object is able to respond differently to some common set of tasks, and objects are independent of each other.
