What is C++?
C++ is a programing language, incorporating all the features offered in C, such as speed, structure, portability, and rich library, but it is also enhanced with features from other programming languages making it even more efficient and flexible. Due to its versatile nature, it has become one of the most widely used languages for scripting, and it is leveraged for diverse software and platform development requirements, from operating systems to graphic design applications.
What is C++ Used for?
C++ is a general-purpose programming language, designed to make programming easier. It is also well suited for tying together various parts of a programming project. Among other features, it can call libraries written in other languages, it can help organize big programs, or keep libraries from interfering with one another or the mail-line code. Most importantly, it forces no upper limit on the size of the problem you are addressing, which means it is suitable for scaling programs that evolve and grow.
The applications of C++ are varied and can be used for development of system software:
C++ is an integral part of the dominant operating systems, including Apple’s OS X and various versions of Microsoft Windows. Also, it was part of the former mobile OS Symbian.
C and C++ programing languages have been used for scripting MySQL which is one of the most popular database management software. It forms the backbone of various database-based enterprises including Google, Wikipedia, Yahoo, YouTube, etc.
C++ programming is used for large-scale enterprise software such as banking and trading enterprise applications, as well as more advanced ones, like flight simulators and radar processing.
Even though PHP and Java have limited the use of C++ to scripting of websites and web applications, C++ coding practice is still having precedence when reliability and speed are required.
Graphic User Interface(GUI)-based Application and Advanced Computations and Graphics
The language also provides the means for building apps that perform real-time physical simulations, high-performance image processing, and mobile sensor applications. Graphic design and video editing software, such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator are scripted in C++; Maya 3D software, too.
C++ is great for developing games since it can override the complexities of 3D gaming, optimize the resource management, and facilitate multiplayer with networking.
Advantages of using C++
C++ development offers many advantages and benefits to companies, allowing them to get closer to fulfilling their business objectives.
Performance and Memory Efficiency
C++ is very fast and allows procedural programming for CPU intensive functions and greater control over hardware.
The rich-function library makes programming in C++ versatile and adaptable.
It is very flexible and extensible, and it can be used for procedural, object-oriented, or functional programming.
Development of Reusable C++ Software
The code written in C++ can be reused later in the same or other software, thus reducing the cost of software development.
