Five Popular Myths About C++

Bjarne Stroustrup, the creator of the C++ language, has written a series of posts (part 1, part 2, part 3) on these five myths about C++:

  • “To understand C++, you must first learn C”
  • “C++ is an Object-Oriented Language”
  • “For reliable software, you need Garbage Collection”
  • “For efficiency, you must write low-level code”
  • “C++ is for large, complicated, programs only”
