... but this is wrong. Gcc determines from the file suffic which language
.cpp -> c++
.c -> C
and so on.
Calling it as g++ vs. calling it as gcc though determines which
runtimes are linked automatically (and partly which include paths are
gcc -o x x.cpp -lstdc++
works perfectly with the OPs program.
I imagine the use of that is being able to compile with gcc to object
code reagrdless of the language involved, then linking within a
special runtime model, even if object files from multiple languages
are being linked together.
