Is there any reason to use C++ instead of C, Perl, Python, etc.?
upvoted, though I would suggest that Ocaml is an example of a language that can get very close to C++ performance while still allowing highlevel abstractions (though these are generally different abstractions from those available in C++ - things like function composition, functors, etc.) as well as well as niceties like type inference, garbage collection and even stronger type safety than what's available in C++.
