WHAT IS C++ ?

C++ is an object oriented programming language. It was developed at AT&T Bell laboratories by Bjarne stroustrup in Murray Hill, New Jersey, USA, in the 1980’s. Stroustrup, an admirer of Simula67 and a strong supporter of C, wanted to combine the best of both the languages and create the powerful language that could support object oriented features and still retain the power and elegance of C. the result was C++. Therefore, C++ is an extension of C with a main addition of the class construct feature of Simula67. Since the class was a main  addition to the original C language, stroustrup initially called the new language ‘c with classes’.  However later  in 1982, the name was given  C++. The idea of C++ comes from the C increment operator ++, thereeby suggesting that C++ is an augmented  (incremented)  version of  C.
