C++ is an advanced, high-level programming language that programmers use to develop applications for a variety of different operating systems including Microsoft Windows, many versions of Linux, and other often-used OSs. And while C++ is no longer the basic standard of commercial software, its power and common use during its high days cannot be overlooked. Indeed, the emergence of C++ as a programming language went a great deal to standardize the coding of applications to cross-platform situations, utilizing the unique powers of every operating system. C++ was originally developed by Bjarne Stroustrup who worked for AT&T Bell Labs. Originally called, “C with classes”, C++ was a marriage between another language called Simula67 with the object-oriented features of C. The original version released in 1980 lacked many of the features associated with a more modern version. For example, a feature called virtual function is a function whose address is not fixed until run-time. This means that the feature does not take memory until it is needed.
