What is C++?
what is C++, as we all know is an extension to C language and was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup at bell labs
C++ is an open source, middle label, preprocessed, compiled, assembled, linked and loaded, procedure-oriented and object-oriented, statically typed, general-purpose programming language.
C++ is developed by an ISO standard committee. The source code of C++ is not bounded by ISO standard, It is available for any user. So C++ is open source.
C++ is middle-level language because it is used for both high-level and low-level language.
C++ is a preprocessor. The preprocessor performs a transformation of the source program.
C++ is compiled, compiled code can be executed directly by the computer’s CPU. The compiler generates the machine code. Line-by-line execution is present inside the compiler.
In procedure Oriented programming language every operation must be present in a function.
Function within the class is known as object-oriented language.
In statically typed programming language before using any variable it is compulsory to declare the type of variable.
General Purpose Programming Language:-
The programming language which is used for the different purpose is called general purpose programming language.
What are the Benefits of C++ over C Language?
The major difference being OOPS concept, C++ is an object-oriented language whereas C language is a procedural language. Apart from this, there are many other features of C++ which give this language an upper hand on C language.
Following features of C++ makes it a stronger language than C,
There is a Stronger Type Checking in C++.
All the OOPS features in C++ like Abstraction, Encapsulation, Inheritance etc make it more worthy and useful for programmers.
C++ supports class.
C++ support data member and member function?
C++ supports operator overloading.
C++ support function overloading.
C++ supports exception handling.
Variables can be declared anywhere in the program in C++ but must be declared before they are used.
