What is Virtual Inheritance?..

Answer / swetcha

Virtual inheritance is used to avoid multiple copies of a
base class in a multiple-inherited object. However, there
are cases where multiple copies of a base are needed in a
derived class. In such cases, virtual inheritance is
intentionally avoided

What is Virtual Inheritance?..

Answer / achal ubbott

The concept of virtual inheritance was evolved to avoid
ambiguity/duplication.

e.g.
class base
{
int value;
};
now we do some multiple inheritance
class A:public base {};
class B:public base {};

Now value is member to both the classes A and B.
Lets have a class C that inherits from both A and B.
class C:public A, public B {};

Now should that mean that C have 2 copies of value as its
data member? Yes and this leads to ambiguity.
So do like this

class C:virtual public A,virtual public B {};

What is Virtual Inheritance?..

Answer / rama

The duplication of inherited members due to multiple paths can be avoided by making the common base class(ancestor class) as virtual base class..

FOR EXAMPLE

class A //grandparent
{
...
...
};
class B1:virtual public A //parent1
{
...
...
};
class B2:public virtual A //parent2
{
...
...
};
class C :public B1,public B2
{
... //only one copy of A
... //will be inherited
};


When a class is made a virtual base class, it take necessary care to see that only one copy of that class is inherited, regardless of how many inheritance paths exits between the virtual base class and a derived class.
