C ++ was created by Bjarne Stroustrup in year 1985. Till the year 1997 the book written by this man published in the month of October of year 1985 itself served as the standard. But in the year 1997, "ISO / IEC 14882: 1998: Programming Language C ++" was published on 1st September 1998 which replaced the previous definition given by Bjarne Stroustrup. Since then many up gradations have been done in the definition of C ++ language.
It is a very renowned application programming language. It has syntaxes and codes which perform the specified tasks when run in their respective compilers. It is often called as a general programming language which was developed as an extension to the C language, just to overcome its shortcomings by extending and enhancing its basic features to perform in a better way.
In the words of Bjarne Stroustrup "the name signifies the evolutionary nature of the changes from C".
That is during when C ++ was evolving initially, it was called as new C or C with classes. But the present name C ++ is acclaimed to be named in a famous tongue-in-cheek spirit. The "+" is actually the operator's sign used in programming languages normally for coding purposes.
In C ++ Application Development there is a wide range of applications based on GUI and CUI categorization. GUI stands for graphic user interface, often called as user-friendly interface. And CUI stands for command user interface.
There are two basic things in any computer system, that is input and output, so for the input and output purposes GUI and CUI interfaces have been developed to cater to the needs of its users.
There are some platform independent C ++ applications which can be run on almost all the existing operating systems.
With the help of C ++ application development software we can create interesting applications, like:
• Audio / video manipulation tools
• Image processing tools
• Software components
A preferred skill set and expertise is required to perform the above said GUI as well s embedded systems.
The audio video clips can easily be edited and modified into various multimedia elements. Such as graphics, images, animation and transition effects also. These can be incorporated with it. It is possible to store information about the clips as well. It helps in creating high quality audio / video content.
The applications developed through C ++ application development system have many advantages, some of which are listed below:
• Solutions become expendable, that is application features and components can be easily added and removed to create custom solutions.
• Such C ++ solutions are portable enough to be run on a variety of platforms.
• To increase the reach of the solution, multi-lingual capabilities can be created though C ++ Application Development.
• Individual client requirement can be met by customizing the existing solutions.
As a language C ++ has been very popular amongst the application developers also. Since it is easy to use and can be used to create application programs which are easy to be modified by the end users also. Customization is the main attribute of any C ++ application software.
