You know, there is a book in which every chapter starts with a quote and 
that the one on Object-Oriented Programming starts with one from the 
dictionary, citing the definition of the verb "object" instead of, 
presumably, the noun.

Then I looked into a dictionary, and noted that there were 11 definitions 
of the word "object". In fact, looking at this page:


it says that there are 14 definitions, and displays the contents of the 
first one, which is itself comprised of 8 sub-definitions.

Well, in computer programming, there happens to be that many definitions
of the word "object", not counting those found in a general dictionary.

That said, not all additions of C++ (compared to C) are about classes and 
objects. There are several other features that can help making better
