C++ is a compiled, general-purpose programming
language. It is regarded as a middle-level language, as
it comprises a combination of both high-level and low-
level language features. It was developed by Bjarne
Stroustrup starting in 1979 at Bell Labs as an
enhancement to the C programming language and
originally named "C with Classes". It was renamed C++

What programmer says about
"The evolution of languages: FORTRAN is a non-typed language. C is a weakly typed language.
Ada is a strongly typed language. C++ is a strongly hyped language."
Ron Sercely. Programmer.
"The latest new features in C++ are designed to fix the previously new features in C++."
David Jameson. Author.
"Fifty years of programming language research, and we end up with C++ "
Richard A. O'Keefe. Computer scientist.
"Ever spend a little time reading comp.lang.c++ ? That's really the best place to learn about the
number of C++ users looking for a better language."
R. William Beckwith.
"C++ has its place in the history of programming languages. Just as Caligula has his place in the

Why I prefer c++ language
Because this is one of the most popular programming languages
ever created, C++ is widely used in the software industry. Some
of its application domains include systems software, application
software, device drivers, embedded software, high-performance
server and client applications, and entertainment software such
as video games. Several groups provide both free and proprietary
C++ compiler software, Microsoft, Intel and Borland. C++ has
greatly influenced many other popular programming languages,
most notably Java.
C++ is also used for hardware design, where design is initially
described in C++, then analyzed, architecturally constrained,
and scheduled to create a register transfer level hardware
description language via high-level synthesis.
