You use inheritance when a derived type must implement the functionality of the base type.
  • Public inheritance is used when the public functionality of the base type may be used by anyone.
  • Protected inheritance is used when the public functionality of the base type may be used only by further-derived types.
  • Private inheritance is used when the public functionality of the base type may not be used by further-derived types.
An example for private (or protected) inheritance might be a wrapper for the HANDLE object in Windows. A HANDLE wrapper may be constructed directly so its constructor must be public, but inside a File object you probably want only the File object (or its derived types) to be able to access the HANDLE.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
