Welcome to Introduction to C++ Programming, an example based textbook, written to cater to the needs of beginners and intermediate users. C++ is an object-oriented programming language, which is a preferred programming approach followed by the software industry. C++ enjoys the distinction of being the most popular and widely used OOP language in the world. The syntax, style, features and philosophy of the language form the basis of many other programming languages such as Java and C#.
Created by Bjarne Stroustrup in the early 1980s, C++, over the period, has undergone many changes and improvements. In 1998, the language was standardized by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and the International Standards Organization (ISO). The textbook confirms to these standards and explains various features of the language in a simple and easy style.
The highlight of the textbook is that each concept introduced in it has been exemplified by a program to clarify and facilitate better understanding. Also, the line-by-line explanation of each program ensures that the users with no previous programming experience are able to understand the concepts and master the programming techniques and use them with flexibility whiledesigning programs.
