A generic class is a class that contains one or more virtual methods and is intended to act as a base class for more specific, specialised classes, known as derivatives or derived classes. A generic class that has one or more pure virtual methods is also known as an abstract base class or abstract data type.

To provide a generic interface for two or more concrete classes.

Function templates are generic functions.

Generic programming means that the code is generic enough that it compile on any C++ implementation. That is, it has no platform-specific code.

By inheriting from existing classes, you can produce more specialised versions of those classes, without the need to rewrite the common generic code, thus reducing code duplication.

Bjarne Stroustrup, who began development of the language, originally called C with Classes, in 1978. The name was changed to C++ in 1983. The first generic release appeared in 1985.

AUTO EXTERN STATIC are the storage classes in c++

C++ uses the generic function implicitly whenever the base class implementation (the generic method) is also the most-derived implementation.

Not as commonly used. More schools are replacing their c++ classes with java classes.

Bjarne Stroustrup developed C++, which was originally called C with Classes.

For programming. C++ is better than C because it is object-oriented and has classes.

Developed in 1979 by the name of C with classes. Renamed to C++ in 1983.

main difference b/w c and c++ is that c is procedural language whereas c++ is object oriented language also classes are not used in c but in c++ classes are used.

generic pointer is a pointer that can not be dereferenced i.e one type pointer can not be assigned to another type.

Objects in Dev C++ are the same as objects in generic C++, insofar as an object is an instance of a class.

C++ is an extension of C language. Initially C++ named as 'C with Classes' but later its changed to C++.

The two main advantages of C++ are object-oriented programming and generic programming, neither of which is natively supported by C.

C with Classes was first developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1979. It was renamed C++ in 1983.

'C with Classes' began development in 1979. The name changed to 'C++' in 1983.

Class inheritance. Derived classes extend the usability of the existing interfaces of their base classes.

You cannot -- not with a generic C or C++ implementation. Both are designed to be as generic as possible, but graphics are platform-specific. For graphics output, you therefore need a suitable graphics library and API for your specific platform and hardware.
