Hi, there.

While .cc should work, and might be the most "standard" form, the gcc docs
indicate that .C, .cc, .cpp, or .cxx are all permissible extensions for
C++ source code files.

Note that a command line with uppercase .C as an extension, say

HELLO.C

identifies the file as C++, while

hello.c

is presumed to be a C file.

While DOS may not be case-sensitive, DJGPP's GCC follows UNIX conventions
in definitely noticing such distinctions <grin>.

Most respectfully,
