Meaning of BASE CLASS

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

(Or "superclass") The class from which another class (a "subclass") inherits.

"base class" is the term used in c++. The term "superclass" is perhaps confusing since objects of the subclass have a superset of the fields of objects in the superclass.

See inheritance.
