put

extern "C"

on the front of your function.

This will stop C++ name mangling and make it callable from your C file.

=== main.c ===

#include "myheader.h"

int main()
{
    map_insert("hello");
    map_insert("world");
    return 0;
}

=== header file ===

#ifndef myheader_h
#define myheader_h

#ifdef __cplusplus
extern "C" {
#endif

int map_insert(char* s);

#ifdef __cplusplus
};
#endif

#endif


=== C++ Source ===

#include "myheader.h"
#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

int map_insert(char* s)
{
    cerr << s << ' ';
    return 0;
}

Which are you trying to do?

[1] Are you trying to access a function in a *.cxx file from a *.c file?

OR

[2] Are you trying to access a function in a *.c file from a *.cxx file?
