Multiple inheritance

The term multiple inheritance is used in object-oriented programming (OOP). Multiple inheritance refers to inheritance in which a class has several direct superclasses. A class defined using multiple inheritance inherits the characteristics of all superclasses. Conflicts can arise if a characteristic is defined in different superclasses, or if an indirect superclass occurs as a multiple superclass.
