A factor not documented in the analysis note is the commonality between C and C++.
MC-3020 is both a C and C++ model compiler. The delta between the two model compiler dialects is (perhaps surprisingly) small. Of course C and C++ differ in syntax in some areas, but C can be made “to do things like C++” in most situations. And usually, “doing it like C++” is a Good Thing.
I see potential value in returning strings “like C++ does it”.
