    def foo(self): """Some docstring"""
    def bar(self): """Other docstring"""

class B(A):
    def foo(self): pass

 |  Method resolution order:
 |      B
 |      A
 |      builtins.object
 |  Methods defined here:
 |  foo(self)
 |      Some docstring
 |  ----------------------------------------------------------------------
 |  Methods inherited from A:
 |  bar(self)
 |      Other docstring
