C++ is as low level and fast exactly as C.
The poster probably meant that the object oriented paradigm is not suitable
I disagree on that also. Sometimes good OO design results in an even faster
Think about virtual function calls vs chains of "if-else" or "switch"
C++ is a multi-paradigm language:
You want to write code in a C-like procedural manner ? you can.
You want Object Oriented programming ? you got it.
You want Generic Programming <templates , STL> ? you got it.
plus, the compiler is always watching you. it won't let you do things that
allows. Therefore , a C++ compiler is an even better way to learn C !.
... and many more benefits.
