AspectC++ generates C++ code, e.g. an aspect becomes a class. It is a 
high-priority goal to support weaving in pure C files, but that requires some 
more time.

Some of our users were successful with compiling their manipulated C files 
with a c++ compiler, but there is not a c++ compiler available for every 
platform. Depending on your aspects an embedded c++ compiler might also be 

You could also try the COMO compiler, which translates C++ to C again, but if 
that's possible depends on your code. First of all you should try to find out 
if ac++ is able to transform your code in the expected way.
