<programming> (Or "subclass") In object-oriented programming, a class
that is derived from a base class by inheritance. The derived class contains all
the features of the base class, but may have new features added or redefine
The synonym "subclass" is possibly confusing since the derived class has a
superset of the base class's features.
Compare derived type.
