Sample text

The mechanism for expressing the ‘is a’ relationship in C++ is inheritance. There are plenty of examples we have already seen where such ‘is a’ relationships are natural. For example, a call option is a vanilla option. The compiler’s built-in random number generator is a random number generator. Box–Muller is a method of turning uniform random variables into Gaussian random variables. An Asian option is a path-dependent exotic option. An arithmetic Asian call option is an Asian option, as is a geometric Asian put option.

This means that if we change that object then the pay-off of the vanilla option will change. The vanilla option will not exist as independent object in its own right but will instead always be dependent on the PayOff object constructed outside the class. This is a recipe for trouble. The user of the VanillaOption will not expect changes to the PayOff object to have such an effect. In addition, if the PayOff object had been created using new as we did in the last chapter then it might be deleted before the option ceased to exist which would result in the vanilla option calling methods of a non-existent object which is bound to cause crashes.

We want the vanilla option to store its own copy of the pay-off. However, we do not want the vanilla option to know the type of the pay-off object nor anything about any of its inherited classes for all the reasons we discussed in the last chapter. Our solution there was to use virtual functions: how can we use them here? Well the object knows its own type so it can certainly make a copy of itself. Thus we define a virtual method of the base class which causes the object to create a copy of itself and return a pointer to the copy.
