C++ is a powerful programming language that has been in use for several decades. Its importance lies in its versatility and efficiency, making it a popular choice for developing software and systems across different domains. The impact of C++ is significant, as it has been used to create numerous high-performance applications, including operating systems, browsers, gaming engines, and financial systems. It has also played a crucial role in the development of the internet and the growth of modern computing.
