any difference between gcc-c++ and gcc-g++


I checked my system having gcc-c++3.3.3-43.28, I would like to install gcc 4.0.2, it comes with gcc-g++-4.02, is it true g++ is the same as c++?

Thanks.

One's a C++ compiler, one's a C compiler.

Out of curiosity: what distro are you using? I've
never seen them referred to like this before.

I've see some distros refer to g++ as gcc-c++ and others as gcc+g++, I just can't rememer which they were because I try out quite a lot.
