	If you are compiling in C++ mode, place export "C" statement around
	the C functions that are exported from the library and you C++
	compiler will not get confused.  This is all has to do with
	the name mangling that C++ compilers do.

	Personally, I'd much rather see the library written in C++ than in C.
	As somone else pointed out, it would be MUCH easier to maintain and
	change.  The library would have been much more flexible and easier
	to assimilate to a different task.  C++ is rapidly becoming THE standard
	development language and most (if not all) the compilers support
	object oriented features.  If the speed was the main consideration
	behind the C implementation of the library, it may be valid, but
	the C++ code can always be optimized to be as fast as C. I was 
	thinking of porting in to C++ myself whenever I get some free time. :-(
