Chapter 1: Beginning C++

  • Bruce Sutherland


The C++ programming language is a powerful low-level language that allows you to write programs that are compiled into machine instructions to be executed on a computer’s processor. This makes C++ different from newer languages such as C# and Java. These languages are interpreted languages. This means they are not executed directly on the processor but instead are sent to another program that is responsible for operating the computer. Java programs are executed using the Java virtual machine (JVM), and C# programs are executed by the Common Language Runtime (CLR).
