What are CPP files and how to open them

Are you having problems opening a CPP file or are you simply curious about its contents? We're here to explain the properties of these files and provide you with software that can open or handle your CPP files.

What is a CPP file?

Files that contain the .cpp file extension hold program source code that has been written in the C++ programming language. A CPP file is commonly one file of many files that are contained in a C++ programming project. When compiled together, the CPP files create an executable application.

The .cpp file extension is also used by the CA-Cricket Presents software. This presentation software uses the .cpp file extension for the presentation files that it creates.

The Maya OpenGL 3D application also uses the .cpp file extension. When the CPP files are used for this program, they contain 3D scene files that have been created with the software.
