What is C++


C++ is an object-oriented programming language. It was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup at AT&T Bell Laloratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey, USA,in the early 1980's. Stroustrup, an admirer of Simula67 and a strong supporter of C, wanted to combine the best of both the languages and create a more powerful language that could support object-oriented programming features and still retain the power and elegance of C. The result was C++. Therefore, C++ is an extension of C with a major addition of the class construct feature of Simula67. Since the class was a major addition to the original C language, Stroustrup initially called the new language 'C with class'. However,later in 1983, the name was changed to C++,. The idea of C ++ comes from the C increment operator ++ , thereby suggesting that C++ is an augmented (increment) version of C.
