what are the disadvantages of C++?..

Answer / linto john

one of the main reason is that it does not support encapsulation, as all the code should be within the class, but main function from where the execution starts is outside the class.

what are the disadvantages of C++?..

Answer / prince0777@facebook.com

C++ lacks in System security because it creats .obj file which can be attacked by hacker .Most of the companies uses C and C++ for system programming because it is prone to attacks in application programming.
Others are :-
* does not provide efficient means for deallocation of memory (garbage collection)
* compilation of code is costly due to 2 reasons :-
1. OS vendor has to employ professionals who can make OS environment that supports C++ applications .
2. Authenciation is required by the vendor which is costly .
