C vs C++

Question:
What is the main difference between Visual C and Visual C++ in Windows environments? Why would I want to use C++ instead? Is there any functional difference?

Answer:
Well, I certainly can't think of any reason why you'd want to use C instead of C++. C++ is everything C is and more. C++ has all but replaced C.

What C++ brings is object-oriented features to C. These features are now considered by the industry to improve productivity because they provide new ways to organize and reuse code.

If nothing else, all the newest and coolest tools are for C++, and you'd have a hard time avoiding C++ if you want to take advantage of the latest technology.
