Do you need a multi-user copy?




ISO/IEC 14882:2017 specifies requirements for implementations of the C++ programming language. The first such requirement is that they implement the language, so this document also defines C++. Other requirements and relaxations of the first requirement appear at various places within this document.
C++ is a general purpose programming language based on the C programming language as described in ISO/IEC 9899:2011 Programming languages - C (hereinafter referred to as the C standard). In addition to the facilities provided by C, C++ provides additional data types, classes, templates, exceptions, namespaces, operator overloading, function name overloading, references, free store management operators, and additional library facilities.
