General Development "Everyone seems to have a replacement for JavaScript - Google even has two. Now Microsoft has revealed that Anders Hejlsberg has been working on a replacement and it has released a preview of TypeScript. TypeScript is open source - Apache 2.0 license - and a superset of JavaScript. As you would expect from a Hejlsberg language it incorporates type checking, interfaces and lots of syntactic sugar."

In many cases the C's weak type system does implicit conversion, while C++ requires an explicit cast due to a stronger type system.

The ?: has a different priority order due to grammar issues.

Finally, after C89 and C++98 each standard group went its own way.
