GCC Moving To Use C++ Instead of C

An anonymous reader writes “CodeSourcery’s Mark Mitchell wrote to the GCC mailing list yesterday reporting that ‘the GCC Steering Committee and the FSF have approved the use of C++ in GCC itself. Of course, there’s no reason for us to use C++ features just because we can. The goal is a better compiler for users, not a C++ code base for its own sake.’ Still undecided is what subset of C++ to use, as many contributors are experts in C, but novices in C++; there is a call for a volunteer to develop the C++ coding standards.”
