Selective Multiple Inheritance
May/June 1994 (vol. 11 no. 3)
pp. 77-85

In conventional multiple inheritance, a class must inherit features from all its ancestors. With this proposed generalized method, you can use an embryonic class, in which the classes themselves are instances, to select ancestor subsets without creating a combinatorial explosion in the object diagram.

Index Terms:
inheritance; object-oriented methods; selective multiple inheritance; generalized method; embryonic class; class instances; ancestor subsets; combinatorial explosion; object diagram
