Things that leap immediately to mind:
#1. I have a copy of Borland Tubro C++ for Windows (v4.5),
and the copy I have doesn't support long file names.
I have no idea if there is a version that does, but
you certainly have to be careful of that.  If it doesn't,
you have to change all the file names accordingly (the
#include statments in the .c files, and all the references
to the files in the makefile).
#2. There are some variables names in circle that C++ has
as keywords (for example, class and new) which need to be
There are other C++ changes that need to be made, but
I don't remember them all off the top of my head (and some
of them are compiler specific in any event - I did it and
had to make some changes other people appearently did not).
#3. Get linux :)
