C++ is a general-purpose, high-level programming language that was created as an extension of the C programming language. It was designed to provide additional features and capabilities for systems programming and other low-level applications.
C++ is an object-oriented programming language, meaning that it allows developers to create and use objects that contain data and functions. It also supports other programming paradigms, such as procedural programming and generic programming.
C++ is used in a wide range of applications, from operating systems and device drivers to video games and high-performance applications. It is known for its speed, efficiency, and flexibility, as well as its ability to interface with low-level system components.
Some of the key features of C++ include support for classes and inheritance, templates and generics, operator overloading, and exception handling. C++ is also highly portable, meaning that code written in C++ can run on a wide range of hardware and software platforms.
C++ is a popular language among professional developers and is taught in many computer science and engineering programs at universities and colleges around the world.
