Abstract or Introduction
The C language was originally designed to support procedure-oriented programming. It was subsequently extended to C++ to support object-oriented programming (OOP). The symbol ++ in C++ indicates that it is an extension of C. C++ supports all features of C, as well added capability to support OOP. Thus you can C++ for both procedure-oriented and object-oriented paradigms.
C++ is one of the most popular programming languages available today. With it, you can develop all sorts of applications such as scientific and business applications and games. It is also a popular language for mircroprogramming and interfacing with hand-held devices and electronic circuit boards and for developing IoT applications.
This book is based on Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 but will equally apply to other versions of C++. This text is intended for beginners and intermediate users. It starts from the basics, but progresses rapidly to the more advanced features. So whether you are a beginner or an experienced C++ programmer, this book will help you master the essentials of C++ programming very quickly. The text is written in an easy-to-read style and contains numerous examples to illustrate the programming concepts. It also contains exercises for practice at the end of each chapter.
