This is different to what you original said, to quote "Do recall that there 
are many basic types of C++ and you need to let them know which to use"

i.e. you are suggesting there are different types of "C++" - As far as I am 
considered this in incorrect.

C,  C++, Objective-C and Objective-C++ are all *different" languages in 
themselves. They may share some common heritage in C or C++, but they are not 
the same language in a strict sense.

( Its the same as American English being very similar to English (British), 
but not being the same, far from it ;) )
