Origin of the C language name

0 votes
I'm a C and C++ programmer who's currently learning C#.

I had a question about why ++ was added to C when I was moving from C to C++. Later on, I understood that ++ is an increment operator that was added to C for the sole purpose of providing a 'Object Oriented Extension.'

What is the meaning of # in C#?

The '#' is actually a musical sharp symbol - much as ++ signifies that C++ is C incremented, # denotes that C++ is C++ incremented, or C++++; a language with C-syntax that provides higher-level capabilities.

You can check out some wiki articles or just google the history.
