Inheritance means that a new class can be defined in terms of an existing class. There are three
common terminologies for the new class: the derived class, the child class, or the subclass. The
original class is the base class, the parent class, or the superclass. The new child class inherits all

Syntacticerror

Semantic error

Syntactic errors also known as compilation


errorsarecausedbyviolationofthegrammar
rules of the language. The compiler detects,
isolate these errors and terminate the source
programafterlistingtheerrors.
E.g.missingormisplaced;or}

Semanticerrorsarelogicalerrors.Ifthereisa
semantic error in a program, it will run
successfully, in the sense that the computer
will not generate any error messages, but it
willnotdotherightthing.

(ii) Runtimeerrorandlogicalerror
Runtime error
Errorssuchasmismatchofdatatypesorarray
outofbounderrorareknownasruntimeerrors.
These errors are generally go undetected by
the compiler soprograms with run-time error
will run butproduce erroneous results.

Logicalerror
Thesearethe errorsrelatedwiththe logicof
the program execution. These errors are not
detectedbythecompilerandareprimarilydue
to a poor understanding of the problem or a
lackofclarityofhierarchyofoperators.Such
errors cause incorrect result.

Design is an important phase in software engineering.Two critical resources used in development

two resources. Inefficiencies in software design can result in complexity that is costly in software
