Arc vs C++: What are the differences?

Arc: A dialect of the Lisp programming language developed by Paul Graham and Robert Morris. Arc is designed for exploratory programming: the kind where you decide what to write by writing it. A good medium for exploratory programming is one that makes programs brief and malleable, so that's what we've aimed for. This is a medium for sketching software; C++: Has imperative, object-oriented and generic programming features, while also providing the facilities for low level memory manipulation. C++ compiles directly to a machine's native code, allowing it to be one of the fastest languages in the world, if optimized.

Arc and C++ can be primarily classified as "Languages" tools.

Lyft, OkCupid, and Twitch are some of the popular companies that use C++, whereas Arc is used by Helpful, Cask, and Icalia Labs. C++ has a broader approval, being mentioned in 199 company stacks & 371 developers stacks; compared to Arc, which is listed in 7 company stacks and 6 developer stacks.

      C++ is used in Shiro (https://github.com/Marc3842h/shiro).

      C++ is a high performance, low level programming language. Game servers need to run with fast performance to be able to reliably serve players across the globe.

      The most latency sensitive parts are written in C++. Due to our interconnected services architecture, we use either Python or C++ for each service, with the performance critical parts being C++14.

      Performance, zero-overhead abstractions and memory safety of the modern C++ language make this the perfect language for the project.

      The main programming language of ApertusVR. C++11 & CMake provides multi-platform targeting. The architecture is modular.
