Confused about the pre-defined word "super"

Hello everyone. Can you please tell me what the pre-defined word "super" means and what it dose. I have searched in the docs but unable to uptain any infomation about it. Sorry about the threadlayout I am on my Android device.

Its used when you are working with inheritance, and allows you to access base functions.

Let's say you are working with a class 'child', which inherits from 'parent', and it overrides a function 'doSomething'. If you want to access the parent implementation of 'doSomething' from an instance of child you would write super.doSomething().
