Who is the author of c++ program?


Hi Elizabeth! Hope this answers your question.


C++ was written by Bjarne Stroustrup at Bell Labs during 1983-1985. C++ is an extension of C. Prior to 1983, Bjarne Stroustrup added features to C and formed what he called "C with Classes". He had combined the Simula's use of classes and object-oriented features with the power and efficiency of C. The term C++ was first used in 1983.


In 1983, the name of the language was changed from C with Classes to C++. The ++ operator in the C language is an operator for incrementing a variable, which gives some insight into how Stroustrup regarded the language.


In 1985, Stroustrup's reference to the language entitled The C++ Programming Language was published. That same year, C++ was implemented as a commercial product.


In 1990, The Annotated C++ Reference Manual was released. The same year, Borland's Turbo C++ compiler would be released as a commercial product. Turbo C++ added a plethora of additional libraries which would have a considerable impact on C++'s development.


In 1998, the C++ standards committee published the first international standard for C++ ISO/IEC 14882:1998, which would be informally known as C++98. The Annotated C++ Reference Manual was said to be a large influence in the development of the standard.


In mid-2011, the new C++ standard (dubbed C++11) was finished. The Boost library project made a considerable impact on the new standard, and some of the new modules were derived directly from the corresponding Boost libraries.

Who is the author of c++ program?


The programming language C++ is pronounced as “C plus plus” or “see plus plus”. It is a free-form, statically typed, compiled, multi-paradigm, general-purpose programming language. It is considered as an intermediate-level programming language because it covers both low-level and high-level language features. This programming language was developed in 1979 at Bell Labs by Bjarne Stroustrup.

C++ was originally named “C with Classes”. It added object-oriented features like classes and other improvements to the C programming language. It was only renamed to “C++” in 1983 as a pun which includes the increment operator. The photo below is Bjarne Stroustrup, a Danish computer scientist and the creator of the C++ programming language.

Bjarne Stroustrup is a Danish and also a British-trained computer scientist which started his work on “C with Classes” at Bell Labs in 1979. The idea behind the creation of the new programming language started from his programming experience for his Ph.D. thesis. He found out that Simula had very helpful features for large software development but was incredibly slow for practical use.

Whereas BCPL was fast but very low-level to fit large software development. During the development days of C++, it had been referred to as “new C” then followed by “C with Classes”. The final name “C++” was credited to Rick Mascitti in mid-1983 and it was in December of that same year when it was first used.
