C--

C-- (pronounced "C minus minus") is a programming language. It is an extension of the C programming language and supports object-oriented programming features such as classes, methods, and inheritance. The language also includes data encapsulation through access control mechanisms like private and public members. Designed to be efficient for both compilers and execution engines, C-- aims to reduce redundancy in compiled code by allowing high-level program representations that map more closely to the machine level instructions executed by the hardware platform.
