Introduction of C++
C++ is an OOPS oriented Language developed by Bjarne Stroustrup (Born: Dec. 30, 1950 ) in AT&T Bell Laboratories, USA in the early 1980's. C++ is based on the C language. It is called 'C++' because it is an advance version of C. The "++" is a operator used in C to increment a variable, and C++ is intended as an incremental improvement of C.
C++ is a middle level programming language, because it has the both features of HLL(High Level Language) and LLL(Low Level Lanague). Initially, the language was called 'C with classes’ as it had all properties of C language with an additional concept of 'classes’. However, it was renamed to C++ in 1983. It is pronounced "C-Plus-Plus."
