What is the correct approach to change the content of an inherited variable?
If contract A inherits contract B which has an variable b,
and contract A is initialising the inherited variable b through its constructor or one of its functions.
Should contract A then declare it as A.b = 123; or b = 123;


Both work. But I have never seen it used as A.b = 123;. I always use b = 123;.

  • Isn't there something to the concern, related to copying / assigning and memory management/gas costs? – NowsyMe Aug 12 '18 at 22:03
