I just realized that g++ is not only limited to uses in linux and other unix enviroments.  When i was coding for ECE2534,  I noticed that MPLAB used the g++ command to compile my c files.  It’s interesting to note since MPLAB runs natively on windows, which was what I was running on at the time.  Some of the flags and modifying options looked very familiar also so I doubt that they just happened to name their compiler g++.

This makes me wonder how much its actually used without public knowledge.  Alot of programs could be using g++ without giving it much credit.
