produce the same output.
Is this a feature or a bug?
It is not a bug. Try it on linux.
How can one know that g++ (not gcc) is invoked?
Isn't the __cplusplus define a feature of c++? I'm too lazy to check if this
is a g++ extension but I'd be surprised if it was.
Yes, it's defined in section 16.8 (Predefined macro names) of the ANSI/ISO
The original poster was using the -xc flag, which tells the compiler
that the following source file is to be read as C regardless of the
file name. I'd expect exactly the same preprocessor output from both
frontends in that case.
