Programming Language


C++ (pronounced see plus plus) is a programming language that is general purpose,statically typed, free-form, multi-paradigm and compiled.It is regarded as an intermediate-level language, as it comprises both high-level and low-level language features.


Developed by Bjarne Stroustrup starting in 1979 at Bell Labs, C++ was originally named C with Classes, adding object oriented features, such as classes, and other enhancements to the C programming language. The language was renamed C++ in 1983, as a pun involving the increment operator.
