I would say no to both statements. It is all up to how you write your code -
you can after all write C-code with a C++ compiler.
Naming a function lcd_update() or lcd::update() gives no difference. Björn
named the major advantages of using C.
But the likelyhood that somebody will make terrible slow and large code
has increased with C++. People has a tendency to use everything C++ offers
just because it is there (streams, new-operator, overloading operators, etc).
Let us protect ourself from those people :-)
