Extension of source file (.c .cpp) affects how it is compiled??

Hello, New in using Intel C++ compiler here. I have an example C file listed below which illustrates the problem. There is no main function in the source by the way. ============================================ #include struct abc { int i,j; } ia; void f1(struct abc t) { printf("%d %d\n", t.i, t.j); } void uf3(void) { f1(ia); } ============================================ When the file is named as, for example, myfile.cpp,it compiles (cntrl+F7) fine. But when I called it myfile.c, then I have the following error >>>>> Error (active) argument of type "struct abc" is incompatible with parameter of type "struct abc" ..... ..... 12 >>>>> Line 12 is f1(ia); I am using Intel Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition for Fortran and C++ Windows 2016 together with Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2015. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you very much. HCL

Yes. This matches the Microsoft (cl) compiler.

If you want to avoid this you can use these options:

/Tc<file>
          compile file as C source

/Tp<file>
          compile file as C++ source''
