C ++ was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1979. At Bell Labs in Murray Hill, New Jersey, as an improvement of the C language and originally named C of Classes, but was later renamed C ++ in 1983.

C ++ is considered as a medium-level language because it contains a combination of both a high-level language and a low-level function.

Standard C ++ libraries

It is divided into three important parts:

  1. The main library contains data types, variables and literals, etc.
  2. The standard library contains a set of functions that manipulate chains, files, etc.
  3. The standard template library (STL) contains a set of methods to manipulate the data structure.

C ++ fully supports object-oriented programming features:

  • Encapsulation
  • Hiding data
  • Polymorphism

Features of C++ Programming Language

  • Simple
  • Portability
  • Powerful
  • Platform dependent
  • Object oriented oriented
  • Case sensitive
  • Compiler based
  • Syntax based language
  • Use of Pointers

Uses of C ++ Programming Language

With the help of C ++ programming language we can develop various types applications:

  • Window application
  • Client-server application
  • Device drivers
  • Built-in firmware etc.
