    Default Overriding inherited methods

    Hello guys,

    I am new to this forum and I will probably be popping up rather frequently. I am in a programming class that I am struggling with. I am actually interested in learning this material though so its really frustrating. I appreciate the help in advance.

    So the first thing I would like to ask about is overriding inherited methods. I am asked to override methods in one of my assignments and I am not really sure how to go about doing it so if you could give me a brief overview with maybe an example I would really appreciate it.

    Default Re: Overriding inherited methods

    If a method f() is defined (not private) in a superclass, define it again in a subclass; the latter definition overrides the first one.

    kind regards,
