C and C++ programming

C, which is the predecessor to C++ was developed in the 1980s for systems programming. C enables programmers to write efficient code and provided close access to the machine. C compilers are found on virtually every Unix system, and can be availabled with most operating systems.

The immence growth of Object-Oriented technology in the 1990s warranted the need of Object-Oriented Programming (OOP) which gradually replaced the more traditional structured programming techniques. Thus originated C++. Although it is not an entirely new language, C++ represents a significant extension of C abilities. C++ does not force you to use its OOP features. You can simply create structured code that uses only C++'s non-OOP features.
