About c++ license.....

P: n/a
Does anybody know where is possible to obtain a license for some
programming language, c++ in my case, or software program? It was
sometime ago a site workbench.org or something like this, but I cannot
find it anymore.
Thanks in advance.

You don't need a license for C++, although some implementations
of C++ require one. One such example would be Microsoft's
implementation, a counter-example is g++ from gnu/gcc.

See the FAQ for more details.

You don't need a license (permission) for C++.
You _may_ need a license to own or operate a compiler
for C++.

Or are you talking about a certification (proof of
competency)?

A person doesn't need a certification to program in
C++ either.
