I don't know visual studio so this is a guess. But remember that c and c++ are very different. C++ is much more strict than c so it is possible that the ide is simply following the rules of c and allowing you to do dubious but legal things in c...

But that is just a guess.

I'm a vim and shell man myself but when working in c++ and java, as I occasionally must, I use eclipse.

But if possible I avoid ides and keep things as simple as possible, especially for python.
