Say I inherit a class from another class and override a method, how might I call a method from the base class. ***KooK Commander***

Explicitly qualify the name of the method

base::method();

Although its not a good design to override none virtual functions in a derived class(see Effective C++ by Scott Meyers).


class A {
public:
int f();
};
class B {
public:
int f();
};
class C : public A, public B {
int f() { return A::f() + B::f(); }
};

#include <iostream>

class foo
{
public:
void test() { std::cout << "foo\n"; }
};

class bar : public foo
{
public:
void test() { std::cout << "bar\n"; }
};

int main(int argc, char* argv[])
{
bar test;

test.foo::test();

return 0;
}
