Abstract

The C++ programming language was designed by Bjarne Stroustrup at Bell Labs, beginning in 1979. The goal of the language was to provide useful features from other languages of the time, such as Simula, with faster runtime performance. C was chosen as the basis for this new language due to its execution speed, portability, and wide adoption.
