You're certainly right. I program in pure C, and I don't use C++
extentions. I know gcc is weak with C++. So let's say GCC is performant
enough for simple C :). I said gcc is "performant" because I compare it
with most DOS/windows tools I've used. Now I look forward for gcc 3.0,
with the egcs contributions. It will sure be a great compiler.
