Title: The Subclassing Anomaly in Compiler Evolution

Abstract: Subclassing in collections of related classes may require re-implementation of otherwise valid classes just because they utilize outdated parent classes, a phenomenon that is referred to as the subclassing anomaly. The subclassing anomaly is a serious problem since it can void the benefits of code reuse altogether. This paper offers an analysis of the subclassing anomaly in an evolving object-oriented compiler. The paper also outlines a solution for the subclassing anomaly that is based on alternative code reuse mechanism, named class overriding.
