C++ is a modern programming language (mid 1980's invention) which provides a number of features which make it useful for some MMAB tasks. The two major features are abstract data types (a late 60's to mid 70's invention) and object orientation (an 80's invention). Tasks for which these are particularly helpful are data-related processing and graphics. This document discusses these features, and how to use the MMAB C++ library.
