C++ (pronounced "C plus plus") is a compiled programming language. It has both high-level and nearly machine-level functionality. It was developed by Dr. Bjarne Stroustrup at Bell Labs in 1979 as an enhancement to the C programming language.

"Hello World!" program

One of the most common examples of a C++ program is a simple "hello world" application. Below is a basic version of such a program.

#include <iostream>

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