Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: The 'Hello World' example is wrong. When I tried to correct it, my edit was reverted.
A: The example code is correct; it compiles and runs on an ISO-compatible system. More importantly, it is cited to "The C++ Programming Language" by Bjarne Stroustrup, which is agreed to be a reliable source on the subject. Any uncited alteration constitutes original research and/or synthesis, which are violations of Wikipedia's policy on verifiability.

compatibility to C[edit]

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)

"Unknown errors can be caught"...[edit]

Wrong. Errors cannot be caught. Unknown types of exceptions can be caught... — Preceding unsigned comment added by ExcessPhase (talkcontribs) 22:15, 25 May 2014 (UTC)

Fixed. mthinkcpp (talk) 13:22, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Turing complete[edit]

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 41.8.216.58 (talk) 18:55, 3 July 2014 (UTC)
