C++ is derived from C, and is fully compatible with C code. It has added classes, templates, references (vs raw pointers), and a number of other advanced programming features that allow you to write very complex programs much more quickly and with less code that it would require in C. As it is, the original C++ was a pre-processor for C, and C++ code would be turned into C code for the C compiler. That was the standard when I started programming in C++ in the early 1990's some 25 years ago.
