Single Inheritance - Public Inheritance in Cpp 2

Single Inheritance – Public Inheritance in C++

Inheritance in which the derived class is derived from only one base class is called single inheritance. Let us consider a simple example to illustrate the single inheritance. Program given below shows a base class B and a derived class D. The class B contains one private data member, one public data member and three public member functions. The class D contains one private data member and two public member functions. #include<iostream.h> class B { private: int a; //private; not inheritable public: int b; //public; ready for inheritance void get_ab(); int get_a(); void show_a(); }; class D : public B...

Defining of Derived Classes in C++

How do we define a derived class in C++ A derived class is defined by specifying it relationship with the base class in addition to its own details. The general form of defining a derived class is: class derived-class-name : visibility-mode base-class-name { … … //members of derived class … }; where, class is the required keyword, derived-class-name is the name given to the derived class, base-class-name is the name given to the base class, : (colon) indicates that the derived-class-name is derived from the base-class-name, visibility-mode is optional and, if present, may be either private or public. The default...
