I think somebody already mentioned this. I'm not at all surprised that this
would work. GCC determines the language of a source file from its extension.
A `.c' file is assumed to be standard {K&R,ANSI,GNU} C; the standard C
header places are searched, etc. `.cc' is assumed to be C++, and headers are
searched for in different places, the C++ compiler is run instead, etc, etc.
For a full list of the extensions grokked by GCC, see the info node of GCC
entitled "Overall Options".
