A programming language for Real Men. Most languages try to provide a simplified way to solve specific problems well. C++ makes no such concession and tries to be mediocre at everything. It lets you program at a very high level, and a very low level in the same program. It lets you write procedural code, object oriented code, generic code and mix them all up. It makes you decide everything and provides no help if you get it wrong.

It is by far the biggest, most complicated, ugly, down-right dangerous language you can use. But it does run fast. It takes at least twice as long to program in C++ as any other major language (except C).

The men who program in C++ are Real Men. The women who program in C++ are Real Men too. You can spot a C++ programmer from their testosterone fueled swagger, and the unbelievable amount of contempt they inject into the phrase Java "programmer". They'll probably do the air quotes and all.
Dev: 'Hey, Reg, you know C++ right? What does:
".\src\Cont.cpp(52) : error C2679: binary '=' : no operator found which takes a right-hand operand of type 'int' (or there is no acceptable conversion)
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\include\vector(392): could be 'std::_Vector_iterator<_Ty, _Alloc> &std::_Vector_iterator<_Ty, _Alloc>::operator =(const std::_Vector_iterator<_Ty, _Alloc> &)' with _Ty=Main::Cont, _Alloc=std::allocator<Main::Cont> while trying to match the argument list '(std::_Vector_iterator<_Ty, _Alloc>, int)' with _Ty=Main::Cont, _Alloc=std::allocator<Main::Cont> " mean?'

1. Mid-level programming language that provides extreme versatility, given a willingness to perhaps spend months writing a program.

2. Grade earned as a direct result of sexual favors.

3. Right up there with capping rival drug dealers and playing out hos in the gangbangin' world.
1. #include <iostream>
int main()
{std::cout << "this is c++\n";
return 0;}

2. Michelle got a c++ because she went down on the teacher. Otherwise, she couldn't have managed an F.

3. Now that has definitions for c++, look for words like "accounting" and "1040EZ form", which are also closely linked to life on the streets.

C++ is a programming language developed by Bell Labs in 1983 and based on the C programming language. C++ is an object-oriented mid-level programming language. It has support for multiple inheritance, operator overloading, templates and exception handling.

C++ is widely used for large projects where both the power of low-level programming (for execution speed) and high-level object oriented programming (for development speed) is needed.

Some find C++ hard to learn and mistakes are easily made by the novice programmer. Languages such as Java and C# are derived from C++ and try to make the job a bit easier for the programmer. However, these languages lack the execution speed and some of the advanced features of C++.
C++ "hello world" example:

#include <ostream>
#include <iostream>

int main()
std::cout << "Hello World!" << std::endl;
return 0;

Incrementing the value of c to by one. Another way of writing
c=c+1; or c+=1;

Used in multiple programming languages.
for(int c=0; c < 5; c++)
cout << "What a boring definition\n";

Simple to learn, high-level, object-oriented programming language.
Many 1000 page doorstops are available for teaching this language. (I'm not poking fun at these books. Some of them are actually useful.)
