(Answer) (Category) Crypto++ Faq-O-Matic :
How much C++ experience do I need to use this library?
Moderator: weidai (inherited from parent)
The library is an powerful and elegant tool for performing complex cryptography. It uses advanced C++ features such as templates, multiple inheritance, and exceptions to achieve that power and elegance.

For people who are familiar with C++, the library will appear intuitive and easy to use. Others may need to view it as a learning opportunity. If you are a C++ beginner and you are under a very tight schedule, or if you are "afraid" of the more advanced features of C++, this library may not be for you. Having said that, you are invited to see for yourself how easy or hard it is to use by looking at some of the other answers in this category.
