If you want more detail and background on C vs C++,
you may want to read two papers written by Bjarne Stroustrup:
Sibling Rivaly: C and C++
C and C++: a Case for Compatibility
As for Sun compiler specific info,
C++ user's guide for Forte 6 update 2:
#pragma ident "Seongbae Park, compiler, http://blogs.sun.com/seongbae/"
Is there any difference between sun studio compilers and forte
or the names have been changed???
