The new life of C++
The GCC is moving towards C++ 🙂
GCC now uses C++ as its implementation language (from version 4.8). In the below link the release note.
This just confirm what I wrote in one of my previous posts. Furthermore in the next months/years we’ll see a lot of open source projects ported on C++. It´s just a natural path.
C++ is gaining the leadership for systems/low level programming because it offers amazing features like polymorphism (both run time and compile time), STL and is a machine independent language keeping (almost) the same performance. If you need an example of good C++ code just take a look at the STL library. If your code doesn’t look like it then it´s just rubbish!
