In the previous lesson, Exceptions in C++, we looked at exceptions. Today, in the C ++ tutorial, we're going to talk about advanced inheritance techniques, such as private and multiple inheritance.

Private and Protected Inheritance

Until now, we used the public keyword to inherit from a class. We already know how this keyword works for a long time. If we use the private keyword instead, then all the public and protected members of the class we inherit from become private. Members are both methods and fields. A class can use public and protected fields and methods of the base class in its own methods, but we cannot access them from outside or from derived classes. In principle, we can imagine that with private inheritance, all public and protected members are rewritten to private. However, we still do not have access to private members of the base class (the one we inherit from).

Protected inheritance works similarly. public is replaced by the
