    windows itself.
    ms office.
    both are examples of what you can do with c++

    the most complex project I worked on was an application that would allow you to write DLLs, called probes, and inject them into a running process that has debug information associated with it. You could inject the code and have it run at any line of any specific function in the running application. It only supported ANSI C for writing the probes, but you could call DLLs written in C++ from the probes.

    The job I'm currently at is developing software which basically implements the HL7 protocol, allowing software at different medical centres to communicate with each other, regardless of what vendor created the software. The real complexity comes in the actual interpretation of the messages, because each vendor has their own interpretation of the protocol, which requires us to be able to detect and interpret each vendor's quirks. We also have our own SDK for use with the protocol, to allow people to develop their own software using our pre-written bindings in most of the common programming languages. In terms of lines of code, I believe that the entire source tree for our main product is about 450k lines of code.

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    I'm currently working a particle system editor, for use with 3D games, you can do basically anything with the system, change the emitters, add gravity, stuff like that. Then, to top it off, you can save the system to an XML file, or load a previously made system.

    Let me just say that you can write almost any program you can think of with C++. Just as the program gets more complex so does the code (And more confusing)

    If I told you anything about the project I am currently working on, I would have to kill you
