Just in case somebody might be interested, there is a small 5 1/2 page article with comparisons between C and C++, to demystify some of the aspects of C++.

You can buy the individual article, or subscibe to the online pdf version of CC which is quite cheap. I have senn many good articles the year I have subscibed.
