What does Base Class mean?

Base Class in Technology Dictionary

A base course is a class, in an object-oriented program coding language, where various other courses tend to be derived. It facilitates the creation of various other courses that may recycle the code implicitly inherited through the base course (except constructors and destructors). A programmer can expand base class functionality by adding or overriding members relevant to the derived class. A base course are often called moms and dad class or superclass. by Vera AnkneyReport definition
