Multiple Inheritance

Some object oriented languages, notably C++, allow a class to inherit from more than one unrelated class. This is called multiple inheritance and is different from the multi-level inheritance in this section. Most of the things that can be accomplished via multiple inheritance in C++ can be handled by interfaces in Java.
