What's the difference between C and C++.  If i was to write a simple subtraction or addition code. Would the code in C be the same as in C++?

C++ is an object oriented language, C is not. That is the main difference between the two.

You can use the same functions in C++ as in C and you can compile the C source with a C++ compiler. Probably you will just get some more detailed error messages for some cases because C++ is more strict in certain things.

So, yes, the addition and subtraction codes would be the same. Even if you wrote a program that calculated something more complicated, the code would be the same. It might be encapsulated in classes in C++, but basically the same.

For simple code, I personally suggest to use C for efficiency and simplicity. But for more complex system, I suggest C++. I wrote a system in C with serveral thousands of lines of code for higher efficiency. The price paid is I need to spend much more time to debug and refactor my codes. So, be careful for choosing between OO and non-OO language.
