What is C++

C++ is a general purpose, case-sensitive, free-form programming language that supports object-oriented, procedural and generic programming.

C++ is a middle-level language, as it encapsulates both high and low level language features.


Object-Oriented Programming (OOPs)

C++ supports the object-oriented programming, the four major pillar of object oriented programming used in C++ are:

  1. Inheritance
  2. Polymorphism
  3. Encapsulation
  4. Abstraction

Standard Libraries

Standard C++ programming is divided into three important parts:

  • The core library includes the data types, variables and literals, etc.
  • The standard library includes the set of functions manipulating strings, files, etc.
  • The Standard Template Library (STL) includes the set of methods manipulating a data structure.

Usage of C++

By the help of C++ programming language, we can develop different types of secured and robust applications:

  • Window application
  • Client-Server application
  • Device drivers
  • Embedded firmware etc
