It says that to do the same in C than in C++, it's necessary to add what's
missing in C. But it also says that C++ always call destructors even when
not necessary, and that there's ways to reduce this overhead. C++ can
certainly be as effective, fast, etc, than C, if programs are carefully
coded. We're not disagreeing. Peace and joy to C++ coders of the universe.
