About C++
C++ is a general purpose programming language invented in the early 1980s by Bjarne Stroustrup at Bell Labs. It is similar to C, invented in the early 1970s by Dennis Ritchie, but is a safer language than C and includes modern programming techniques such as object oriented programming.

In fact C++ was originally called C with Classes and is so compatible with C that it will probably compile more than 99% of C programs without changing a line of source code. This was a deliberate design feature by the designer. Here is a short overview and history of C++.

The purpose of C++ is to precisely define a series of operations that a computer can perform to accomplish a task. Most of these operations involve manipulating numbers and text, but anything that the computer can physically do can be programmed in C++. Computers have no intelligence- they have to be told exactly what to do and this is defined by the programming language you use. Once programmed they can repeat the steps as many times as they wish at very high speed. Modern PCs are so fast they can count to a billion in a second or two.

Abstract for Library Management

In today’s modern age where computer has become a way of life, majority of country’s institution still do not adapt high technology. In some schools, library transactions are still done on paper.   We all know that modern school libraries are operating at great pace striving to serve as many students as possible with the best of their abilities. But as the years rolled by, the number of students has grown and the manual method of managing student and book records is no longer practical.

A Library Management System is a system that makes use of information technology to perform managerial objects. The main goal of a library management information system is to store, organize, share and retrieve vital information needed to perform daily operational functions of a library.

Since library has a very large number of books and large number of members, it is impossible for librarians to handle day to day activities manually.   Therefore, a library management system is used to facilitate the tasks in the library. With growing population and high demand of the public, libraries are in need of such system.   And so this is the reason why the proponents came up with the idea of developing the system. By means of obtaining good performance of such system for the library, the level of production and effectiveness of the library will progress.
