=head1 NAME

Class::Fields::Inherit - Inheritance of %FIELDS


=head1 SYNOPSIS

    use Class::Fields::Inherit;
    inherit_fields($derived_class, $base_class);


=head1 DESCRIPTION

A simple module to handle inheritance of the %FIELDS hash.  base.pm is
usually its only customer, though there's nothing stopping you from
using it.

=item B<inherit_fields>

  inherit_fields($derived_class, $base_class);

The $derived_class will inherit all of the $base_class's fields.  This
is a good chunk of what happens when you use base.pm.
