With new and easy languages coming up, I feel the need of C++ with be lesser in the future. In C++ to print hello world, you need to write 4-5 lines of code but in python only one line!

C++ is an older and more complex language. So will it be used in the future?

Will oxygen be needed in the future?



There is a newish language called Rust that claims to be better - but whether it will become popular is another matter. And then there will be all those legacy C and C++ programs.

C++ will never be ousted by interpreted languages such as Python - it has altogether different capabilities.

Two or three hours spent thinking and reading documentation solves most programming problems.

Please don't PM technical questions - post them on the forum, then everyone benefits/suffers equally

Well, COBOL is still around

FORTRAN?
ADA?
But yes, C & C++ will be around for a long time.

Perhaps you should investigate the language that the PYTHON interpreter is written in.

Nothing is eternal, but I think C++ will be here for a while and maybe longer than other more modern languages.

Anything is possible if someone's willing to code a translator to convert to binary for uploading.   BASIC, LOGO, PASCAL, PILOT, etc.

Anyone know of a FORTRAN programmer for Arduino?    :D
