Things like this are really starting to get on my groat.
It used to be that C++ was very nearly a superset of C,
so it was easy to write code that would compile as either.
But C++ seems to be evolving into a different language

(And an obnoxiously authoritarian one at that. If I want
to write some C++ code that uses stdio because I happen
to like it better, why the heck shouldn't I be allowed
to? It's MY program, not the C++ standards board's!)

Sorry, I just had to say that.
