Why c++ is not useful for Real-time  Embedded systems.For example for any

Why not C++..?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Going in your own lines are you not aware of the TOLD (Takeoff and landing functionality), which is part of FMS,  is written in C++.

So I feel Both C++ and ADA are used for real time systems. In older system ADA was used. New products coming into market are making using of C++.

A recent C/C++ Users Journal has articles on C++ in real-time systems.  It is defintely done, I would guess that the main drawback is that it takes more advanced hardware (more memory and maybe more processor time) than other languages used for this.
