C++ is C with classes. It was designed for one person to manage large
amounts of code, and so that a line of C++ express more thing than a
line of C. The main functionalities C++ adds to C are:
- control of the accessibility to code within the source files
- mechanisms that make a line of code more expressive
(constructors, destructors, operators, ...).
- object programming (class derivation).
- generic programming (templates).
