If you do not use the -+ option, files must have a suffix of .C (uppercase C), .cc, .cp, .cpp, .cxx, or .c++ to be compiled as a C++ file. If you compile files with suffix .c (lowercase c) without specifying -+, the files are compiled as a C language file.

The -+ option should not be used together with the -qsourcetype option.


To compile the file myprogram.cplspls as a C++ source file, enter:

 xlc++ -+ myprogram.cplspls
