C++ is a software programming language that is popular amongst engineers and programmers that want to take advantage of the object-oriented programming language combined with the low-level access of the more primitive (i.e. 2nd/3rd generation programming languages).  For more information about this and other programming languages, Wikipedia will provide you with a good start.

This name is attributed to Rick Mascitti (mid-1983) and was first time manage in December 1983. parior, during the development age, the manufacturing language had been named as "new C", then "C with Classes". In computer science C++ is still named as a superoperations of C. The last name was given from C's "++" operator and a well known name style of using "+" to show an advance computer program.
C++ is designed for the following purposes.
It is made to be a statically typed, to work normal purpose language that is as fast and easy to move as C.
C++ is designed to forward and completely help more then one programming ways as like (step by step programming, piece of data, object-oriented programming, and basic programming).
C++ is made to provide the programmer select, even if this makes it probable for the programmer to select not correctly.
C++ is made to be as reliable with C as possible, therefore facilitating a smooth transition from C.
C++ prevent the views that are platform definite or not normal purpose
C++ does not incur forward for views that are not in programming
C++ is made to work without a sophisticated programming condition
thanked the writer.
Tulip: you are way off the mark. I don't know how much of this is because of your lack of skill with the English language and how much of it is because you don't really know anything about C++ but this doesn't sound like your area of expertise.

C++ is an object oriented programming.
C++ is an extension of C with a major addition of the class construct feature of simula67.
The idea of C++ comes from the c increment operator ++, thereby suggesting that c++ is an augmented (incremented) version of c).
C++ is a superset of C.
Most of what we already know about C applies to C++ also. The most important facilities that C++ adds on to C are classes, inheritance, function overloading, and operator overloading.
These features enable creating of abstract data types; inherit properties from existing data types and support polymorphism.

High level language.
C++ is a computer programming language that is based on the "C" programming language.  C++ is also called a "superset" of "C" in that any correctly written "C" program can be compiled by the C++ compiler.  C++ implements a number of extensions over the "C" language.  Most important of these are: Objects, inheritance, and templates.

The "++" part of the name is a reference to the "increment operator" in the "C" programing language.  Saying "C++" in English would be like saying "the value/thing that comes after C".

C++ was written by  Bjarne Stroustrup  at Bell Labs during 1983-1985.  You can find a good history of it here:
