C vs. C++

Filed under: C/C++, dsp, embedded systems, programming, software development — larryang @ 5:02 PM

I’ve been reading up on C vs. C++, as more DSP compilers now support C++. My conclusion is that it’s worth using for the better type handling, private/public methods and operator overloads but with constraints on how certain features of C++ are used. From what I can tell, just avoid inheritance and certain libraries.

But…. I’ll mostly be using C. Most legacy code is in C, and hard won expertise trumps features. In software development, there’s no silver bullets.
