Diamond Inheritance and Attribute Types in Timor

By: J. Leslie Keedy, Christian Heinlein, Gisela Menger, Mark Evered

Abstract

In Timor multiple inheritance of methods from a common abstract ancestor and of separate “parts” from distinct supertypes are handled in different ways. The paper shows that neither technique is suitable for cases where a common concrete ancestor is specialised in different subtypes and then brought together in a new subtype, possibly with repeated inheritance.
