You mean except for the places in which C and C++ disagree...that is, a
conformant ISO C++ compiler cannot be a conformant ISO C compiler (and vice
versa, of course), because the language specs do conflict with one another
in some cases (not all of which are obscure).

One should be aware of this when combining C and C++, especially if you use
some of the things new to C99.
