It's not so much being able to write C++, but rather the ability to read
C++ (or C) code that is a desirable skill. If you can read the source
code for a project and understand what the programmer was talking about,
you will find it much easier to accurately document the project.

Having recently changed careers from academia to tech
writing and conducting my first tech writing job search, I'm
amazed at how many jobs ask for programming experience. Is
there really any significant number of tech writers who, in
addition to the skills required to succeed even as a very
technically oriented writer, know how to write C++ code?
