Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The C and C++ programming languages are closely related. C++ grew out of C, as it was designed to be source-and-link compatible with C. Due to this, C code is often developed with C++ IDEs, integrated with C++ code, and compiled in C++ compilers. While most C source code will compile as C++ code without any changes, certain language differences prevent C++ from being a strict superset of C. Likewise, C++ introduces many features that are not available in C and in practice almost all code written in C++ is not conforming C code. This article, however, focuses on differences that cause conforming C code to be ill-formed C++ code, or to be conforming/well-formed in both languages but to behave differently in C and C++.show more
