Chapter 13: Scripting

  • Bruce Sutherland

Abstract

C++ is a powerful programming language that can be used in a number of ways and supports several different programming paradigms. It allows for high-level object-oriented abstractions and generic programming, but it also allows you to code at a very low level that takes into consideration CPU characteristics such as the length of cache lines. This power comes at the expense of the need to compile the language into machine code. Compiling, building, and linking C++ is a task that programmers need to take on and not something that is simple for non-programmers to understand.
