FYI, one of the first C++ applications to see the light of day outside of Bell
Labs was DMDPI, a debugger for an intelligent graphic terminal ( DMD5620 ). I
think that comes close to qualifying as an embedded application. When it is the
right tool for the right job, C++ can be the most efficient tool around. When
used incorrectly, it can be a nightmare, but then again, so can any language.
