C++ is a statically-typed, free-form, (usually) compiled, multi-paradigm, intermediate-level general-purpose middle-level programming language. C ++ is one of the most popular languages, which is mainly used with system/application software, drivers, client-server applications, and embedded firmware.
Without any doubt, C++ is the most powerful and fastest language we have…along with its subset language ‘C’. If you are determined to learn C ++, then always start learning C. C is a subset of C ++ (OK, less or more) – so to learn C ++ you will need to learn 99% C anyway.
