||The ability of a class to pass on characteristics and data
to its decendants.
||The ability to define a base class that includes routines
that perform standard operations on groups of related objects without
worrying about the exact data type of the object.
||There are 4 types of scope: local - names local to the current
block; function - labels can be used anywhere in the function they are
declared; file - name declared outside all blocks and classes and therefore
gobal; class - the name of a class member is local to its own class and
can't be used outside of that class.
