About This Committee

PL22.16 - Programming Language C++

Task Group PL22.16 (formerly J16) is responsible for the technical development of the standard for the C++ programming language. The goal of this project is to make it possible for C++ programs to be highly portable among different operating systems and across a wide variety of computers. High level of compatibility with the ISO C standard and suitability for the International community are two associated goals established by PL22.16 that will help to extend the useful life of this standard and increase the audience of its users.

This Task Group is the U.S. TAG to ISO/IEC JTC 1 SC22/WG21.
