Yes and no. Bjarne Stroustrup himself has declared that every program
in K&R's _The C Programming Language_ is a valid, well-formed C++
program. They are definitely different languages, but most sane C90
code will compile without complaint in C++.
Of course, there's a lot of pretty insane C out there.
