C++ does not use P code and it does not require any sort of virtual machine, unlike java.

The closest C++ comes to Pseudo code is its .OBJ files, these are compilation units that are used by the linker as part of the C++ separate compilation feature.

When you are in debug mode the compiler will generate an OBJ file for every source file in your project. If you change the code in any source file then you only need to recompile the code in that file and the linker will use the other existing OBJ files to produce an EXE.

When you do a release build C++ will compile a new .EXE direct from source.
