What is C++
C++ is a general-purpose and object-oriented programming language derived from C.
It was created by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1983 while working for AT&T Bell Research Labs. C++ is used for developing operating systems, compilers, editors and databases. Server-side applications, games, and networks are included in its program.
It is among the most popular programming languages currently in use. The advantages of C++ are its portability, compatibility with C and its scalability.
Additional advantages are its large support community and the high degree of control it allows its users. C++ is operational on many platforms such as Mac, Linux or Windows.
