Library sizes for C vs C++ in an embedded Linux system
Is the size of the libraries required for C++ (vs C) a concern in Embedded Linux systems? Most Embedded Linux systems likely include some C++ code, so this is probably not even a decision we need to make in many cases. However, often there is a need for a small initramfs that is used as part of the boot process (perhaps for software updates) before switching to the main root file system. In this case, it makes sense to keep the initramfs as small as possible, and we might be concerned here with the size of C++ libraries.
