'OT: Re: What's the difference between 'C' and 'C++'
Peter L. Peres
The difference is, that there is no C++ compiler for PICs, while there is
more than one C compiler.
The technical difference is, that C++ is an object oriented hack (read:
improvement) of C, which may be better than C in the right hands, on the
right platform, with the right compiler, and the right libraries. As a
rule of thumb, compiled C++ code requires more code-space than compiled C
code, which makes C++ a distinct loser against C in small embedded
systems, such as PICs, and many others.
If you would like to know what bandwidth others have wasted about this
before (plenty), ask a web search engine, instructing it to search in news
archives, and if you would like to start a 200-message thread, ask the
question in the comp.lang.c newsgroup.
Sorry for being blunt, I'm tired.
