It is actually a C library. The "C++ patch" by James DuPont was just to ensure more strict typecasting - it makes libredwg compile under g++, but it is still C code. C code is compatible with C++ (as long as it doesn't use any C++ reserved words as variable names), and C++ applications can link directly to C libraries, dinamically or statically.
