Computers operate only when they are instructed using a computer language. As computers come in different forms and perform many different tasks, many different computer languages are developed. Languages such as C and C++ are good for developing operating systems and embedded systems software. The C++ is one of the high-level computer languages (languages that are closer to human languages and further from machine languages).
The C++ is also an object-oriented programming (OOP) language. An OOP divides a program into objects (whereas procedural languages divide a program into functions). It is widely used in the software industry to create operating systems software (“most of Windows is written in C++”), application software, device drivers, embedded software, high-performance server and client applications, and entertainment software such as video games.
