Before starting the abcd of C++ language, you need to learn how to write, compile and run the first C++ program.
To write the first C++ program, open the C++ console and write the following code:
#include<iostream.h> includes the standard input output library functions. It provides cin and cout methods for reading from input and writing to output respectively.
void main() The main() function is the entry point of every program in C++ language. The void keyword specifies that it returns no value.
cout << "Welcome to C++ Programming." is used to print the data "Welcome to C++ Programming." on the console.
getch() The getch() function asks for a single character. Until you press any key, it blocks the screen.
