Will C++ be used in the future?

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?

Yes

:D

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.

Well, COBOL is still around

I don't understand the point you are making.

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

well f2c can get you started... (the f77 compiler was written in C and relied on a C compiler back end)
