The origins of C++
Martin Richards' BCPL became the B programming language, created by Ken Thompson in 1970, then morphed into the NB language which then became the C programming language, developed at AT&T in the late 60's and early 70's by Dennis Ritchie. Bjarne Stroustrup, also of AT&T, extended C which became C++ around 1983 in order to add object oriented constructs and reusability to the C language.
