"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

C++ includes most of C. It adds two major features, and several minor enhancements. The two major additions are:
1. Support for object oriented programming (classes and virtual functions).
2. Support for generic programming (templates).
Other enhancements include exception handling (which has been also added to C9x), stronger typing, inline functions, namespaces, standard specification of linkage (eg extern "C") etc.
The C++ standard library includes the C standard library, and adds much more, including the iostream library and STL.

About the aspects you mentioned:
1. Filename - no difference. In both C and C++ the filenames depend on the underlying operating system.

2. Program structure - C supports structured programming (separating the program to functions), while C++ supports also object oriented programming (separating the program to classes and objects) and generic programming (separating the program to templates).

3. Data type - the basic types are the same: int, char etc. However, in C++ you can define new types (classes) that behave like built-in types. In C, you can only define "dumb" structs.

4. Function - both languages support functions in the same way. C++ adds inline function support.

5. Expression - the expression syntax is the same in both languages.

6. Control structure - Both languages have the same control structures. There is only a slight difference in the usage of "for".

7. Operator - Both languages have the same operators. However, C++ allows you to define operators for your own types (classes), and make them behave as-if they were built-in types. For example, you can define a class Complex, and define operators +, - and * for it.
