## Abstract:
A C++ implementation of the jet algorithm for high energy particle
collisions is presented. The time performance of this implementation
is comparable to the widely used Fortran implementation. Identical
algorithmic functionality is provided, with a clean and intuitive user
interface and additional recombination schemes. A short description
of the algorithm and examples of its use are given.
