The Art of Unix Programming
Eric Steven Raymond
The Gnu Compiler Collection includes a C++ compiler. The language is
therefore universally available on Unix and on Microsoft operating systems;
comments made under C above also apply here. Strong collections of
open-source support libraries are
available. However, portability is compromised by the fact that (as of
mid-2003) actual C++ implementations implement widely varying subsets of
the draft ISO standard now in preparation.
 The last C++ standard, dating from 1998, was widely implemented but
weak, especially in the area of libraries.
