Definition of C++

C++ is a high-level programming language developed by Bjarne Stroustrup at Bell Labs in 1980. C++ extends object-oriented features. It is very similar to C (invented by Dennis Ritchie in the early 1970s).


It is a compiler based, case-sensitive, free-form programming language that supports object-oriented, operator overloading, procedural and generic programming.

Bjarne Stroustrup is known as the creator or founder of C++ language.

C++ is also called as Superset of C (it means any valid C program can also be a valid C++ program. ) !

Source code can be written to be platfrom independent and written to take advantage of platform. C++ typically compiled into machine code.
