This paper considers the execution of different C++ language program codes based on simple program, functions, class inheritance, recursion and file handling under Quantum Computing Environment using the Quantum++ simulator and the execution of similar C++ language program codes on the traditional computer. The comparison of the results has been presented, analyzed and concluded with. The need, advantages and disadvantages of a Quantum Computing Environment have also been discussed briefly in this paper.
