Benchmarks "Google has released a research paper that suggests C++ is the best-performing programming language in the market. The internet giant implemented a compact algorithm in four languages - C++, Java, Scala and its own programming language Go - and then benchmarked results to find 'factors of difference'."

Besides that its two-level compilation scheme and user extensible syntax really complicates things like syntax highlighted editors and aspect oriented development.


What two-level compilation scheme are you talking about?

In software engineering, you have other problems than simple performance. Maintainability, evolvability , reliability... The language of choice depends on most of these requirements. Oww and also, on some occasions multi-language (multi-paradigm) programing is really helpful. Some problems simply don't fit into OO.


Maintainability, reliability and all that stuff and out of topic for the article's document: It just talks about performance and, though C++ is not as clean or simple as Java, it is (together with C) dominating the industrial software development.
