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.
