    Isolating a C++ function/module with C

    I was wondering if I could get some help. We have some older C applications (compiled via GCC under Linux/Unix) and one of the functions supplied by a third party was recently changed to use multiple C++ class directives that are included into our application via multiple INCLUDE preprocessor statements. At this point it is not practical to rewrite the applications to be C++ compliant.

    Does any one a slick way to isolate the C++ routines so we can compile them with the GCC compiler?

    THANKS!

    Consider using the extern "C" setup that C++ provides so you can compile the whole thing as C++. Here is more info.

    Hope is the first step on the road to disappointment.
