The first C++ compiler known as cfront was written by the developer at AT&T. It strong ties to C language. At the beginning, the developer and other scientists viewed the work done as an extension of C language. Actually Bjarne Stroustup wanted to add some new features in the subset of C++ that support Object Oriented concepts. In the subsequent years, he succeeded in his goal which is now adays called the C++ language with object oriented approach. C++ is a separate language to C and is almost a proper superset of C. It is for your information that the original version was called, ?C with classes?. In 1989, the first true C++ compiler, G++, was written by Michael Tiemann of Cygnus was able to produce code for most of the targets that GCC already supported. In late 90?s and the years following, a number of new C++ compilers were produced but many were unable to keep pace with the standards committee. This era of no development is the fundamental cause of non-portable of C++ programs. One of the plus p[oints of the language and especially the standard one is that it encompasses the language interface to the standard library and also the Standard Template Library (STL). There are many new features added in this language but a few of them are presented in the following manner. Built in tool (Boolean) type Exceptions Casts Namespaces The mutable keyword Templates Standard Template library (STL) Conclusion There are only a few incompatibilities with C and they are new keywords such as New, delete, Void* pointer type conversion, etc. The last thing which should also be mentioned is that the improved comments where the delimiter gives two types of flavor. The first flavor is the C comment delimiters and the new one is the form of double slash. At the end I would say briefly that C was redesigned, extended and the reimplementation of this process, the resulting language is now called the C++ language. read less

Hello Mansoor ji, Raag Lalit belongs to Poorvi thaat which features Komal Rishabh and Komal Dhaivat alongwith Teevra Madhyam. (Pancham Varjya, Rest all notes Shuddha). Though in Raag Lalit, Shuddha Madhyam is very prominent alongwith Gandhar. The use of Shuddha Madhyam and Teevra Madhyam, one after another gives this raag a unique character. Raag Bhairavi belongs to Bhairavi Thaat which features Komal Rishabh, Komal Gandhar, Komal Dhaivat and Komal Nishad (Rest notes Shudha and its Sampoorna Raag with all 7 notes). If the artist sings a correct position of the notes of one raga with the other thaat then certainly he or she is a awesome performer. Regards, Rekha Pandya read less

There is no typical age limit of learning. But yes, i agree with some of the people here that learning at a tender age helps in moulding the voice the way one wants it to. But to become a professional singer, it requires a sheer amount of time. One can be a professional singer only when he/she is confidant & have achieved excellence with his/ her knowledge & grip over the subject to be performed. And that expertise & Knowledge is achieved only through constant learning & practice. So one should give it the required time it needs. However it is completely my opinion, others might differ! All the Best for your venture :) read less
