In object oriented programming, subclassing means deriving a new class from an existing superclass that inherits some or all of the parent class code. Inheritance is one of the most powerful features of object-oriented design.

Sub"class` (?), n.

One of the natural groups, more important than an order, into which some classes are divided; as, the angiospermous subclass of exogens.
