There is no need to have a paragraph regarding compatibility with other languages (including C) here. C++ is meanwhile a separate language. That it once was a superset of the then existing C is only of historical importance.ExcessPhase (talk) 22:07, 25 May 2014 (UTC)
Bjarne Stroustrup considers it worth mentioning, he devotes a chapter to it in The C++ Programming Language (advanced) and Programming Principles and Practice (Beginners). I have removed the C++11 list though, and transferred it to the C++11 page (as it is better suited there). mthinkcpp (talk) 13:34, 26 May 2014 (UTC)
Why does it say "turing complete" in the description of templates. A template cannot run any expression a computer can compute at compile time. Who the hell has got turing complete in their head that side and keeps typing "turing complete" on anything to do with software. So what, who cares? move it to a philosophy page about the topic instead. It is nonsensical garbage. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 18:55, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
