    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    ..Yes. But it can be a bit difficult and frustrating to do.

    As I'm sure you're aware you can use Gtk+ from C (in fact that's its native language, so to speak) . . . mixing languages as you have described is possible but quite a lot of effort, and probably only worth it if you're trying to create a plugin system with the scripting language or something like that.

    In case you want to move up from C for GUI, but don't want the hassle of integrating another language into C, C++ might be another option. The middle ground, so to speak.
