C++ Introduction1 min read

C++ is a powerful general-purpose, case-sensitive, free-form programming language that supports object-oriented, procedural, and generic programming. It is a midlevel language as it comprises both low and high-level language features.

C++ programming language developed by Bjarne Stroustrup starting in 1979 at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, New Jersey. It was developed as an enhancement to the C language and originally named C with Classes but later it was renamed C++ in 1983.

C++ runs on a variety of platforms, such as Windows, Mac OS, and also in the various versions of the UNIX system. C++ can be used in various platforms for development purposes such as for the development of operating systems, browsers, games, etc.


Object-Oriented Programming

C++ supports object-oriented programming(OOPs) and hence stands on four major components and those are.

  • Inheritance
  • Polymorphism
  • Encapsulation
  • Abstraction

Standard Libraries of C++

C++ is consists of three major parts:

  • The first one is the core library which gives the building blocks of the programming, such as variables, data types, and literals, etc.
  • Second is the Standard library that gives a set of functions manipulating strings, files, etc.
  • The third one is The Standard Template Library (STL) that includes the set of methods manipulating data structure, etc.

What are the Features of C++ programming Language?

  1. Object-Oriented Programming (OOP)
  2. Simple
  3. Platform or Machine Dependent/Portable
  4. High-Level Language
  5. Multi-paradigm programming language
  6. Case Sensitive
  7. Compiler based
  8. Speed
  9. Rich in Library
  10. Memory Management
  11. Pointer and Recursion
