Difference Between POP and OOP:
POP is a structural or procedural oriented programming language that is machine independent and is used extensively in various applications.
C is the basic programming language that can be used to run Oracle systems, Git, Python interpreter and many more complex programs from the operating system (like Windows).
If we know C language, we can easily learn other programming languages. The C language was developed by Dennis Ritchie, the great computer scientist at Bell Laboratories. It has some additional features that make it unique from other programming languages.
C ++ is a special-purpose programming language developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1980 by bell labs circa. The C ++ language is similar to the C language, and is so compatible with C that it can run 99% of C programs without changing any source of code. C ++ is an object-oriented programming language, so it is a safer and well-structured programming language than C.
Difference between C and C ++
The following is the difference between them: –
|C Programming (POP)||C++ Programming (OOP|
|It language which is a process oriented programming language||It is a mixture of both process and object oriented programming language.|
|It does not have virtual function||It has virtual function.|
|It programs use top-down approach||It programs use bottom-up approach.|
|namespace is not available in C language||namespace is available in C ++.|
|It does not have inheritance||It has inheritance facility.|
|It is a middle level language||It is a high level language.|
|Function overloading is not available in C||function overloading is available in C ++.|
|It does not have operator overloading||operator overloading is available in C ++.|
|There is no concept of polymorphism in C||The concept of polymorphism is available in C ++.|
|It only supports built-in data types||It supports both built-in and user defined data types.|
|It was developed by Dennis Ritchie in 1972||It was developed by Bjrane Stroustrup in 1979.|
|C is what it does not support encapsulation||It supports encapsulation.|
|C language does not support reference variable||It language supports reference variable.|
|scanf () and printf () functions are used for input and output in C.||Cin and Cout functions are used for input and output in C ++.|
|exception handling facility is not available in C||exception handling facility available in C ++.|
|C programs are divided into modules and procedures||It programs are divided into classes and functions.|
|Variable declaration always top of the main function.||In C++ you can declare variable anywhere in program|
