General Development "I am pleased to report 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. Before we start to actually use C++, we need to determine a set of coding standards that will apply to use of C++ within GCC."

Procedural and object oriented paradigms are not mutually exclusive.

Both C and C++ are procedural languages (both in the sense of them being imperative languages, and in the sense of using procedures as the basis for modular object assembly).

In fact, almost any object oriented paradigm is by definition based on procedural approaches.

So it would be correct to say that C and C++ are both procedural languages, and only C++ is the object oriented one.
