Can c++ still be kald a programming language?





jossylala
Hey all,i was just wondering. Can c++ still be cald a programming language cos i hardly c programmers using it. May be we should get a new category for it instead of kaling it a programming language. What do you guys think?
Gushe
Off course it is a programming language. Smile

If you don't see people using it then you aren't looking very hard!

How does that change what it is? What are you even trying to say?

I'm a highschool student and i know c++, its actually a very common language... Look at your operating system, most of you programs, it was just about all coded in C++. kthx bai

Good to know james that you know c++, but dont you thing its rather old?

First of all, irrelevant, still a programming language
Secondly, c++ is still being actively developed with c++0x t o be finalized soon.
Thirdly, why don't you think it is a programming language?

If it's a language, used for programming, then it's probably best left being called a programming language.

I rest my case.

Maybe because they're using C?

Never I think c++ will be here for as long as computers are. How long has C been here? Java? VB? ect?

working on c++ for last 3 years does that count

I don't get you. Of course it's a programming language, and widely used one.

I don't think anyone is getting annoyed. =) I think everyone just wants to know what you would call it instead.

Well, let's call it a... "legacy utility development base". How about that for a name? Wink

I read this and laughed for about five minutes, no offense jossylala.
But not calling C++ a programming language would be like not calling an elephant an animal.

C++ is still one of the most widely used programming languages out there. Despite the fact that it's "old".

We still call a Model T a car don't we? Even if no one ever used C++, it would still be called a programming language.

... it ceases to be witty when you have to explain. Nevertheless... it's supposed to be read "Legacy (utility development base)". Utility development base = programming language. Legacy = old. Hence, this is synonymous to calling it an "old programming language".

fire boar i like that,it seems to be the perfect name for that language....

@star war,i know its still a programming language,but i just wanted a little twist of its name as fire boar just did and also to have a little chit-chat(on programming with no programming fun makes a programmer go wack!)

Why don't you just keep ... c++ XD, all it is, is an updated version of the language of C#.

Uh, no, C++ is built off of C, not C#.

Yep,

the language C was developed by Bell labs quite a while ago.
C++ is an extention to the C language
and C# is the .NET version developed by MS.
unlike C or C++, C# gets compiled into Bytecode (like java) instead of machine language.

a C# .exe needs the .net runtime(framework) to run, C and C++ don't
Jamestf347
i meant C :S but at the same time... What would be the point in "changing" the name.. keep c++ and get over it, more languages will come out in the future. You could even create your own if you had the time.
