What's the Point?
So to put it in the simplest of terms, inheritance is a linguistic level (built into the language) method of reusing code. The idea being that you can write code in one class and then reuse it in other classes. Inheritance is a huge topic (sometimes fraught with debate about how to best use it) so I am not going to try to cover everything here, but rather I am going to try to get the main idea across by looking at some very basic examples.
