Can I use C++ libraries with Objective C

Should I be able to use C++ libraries (I'm thinking of the C++ version of Xalan right now) within an Objective-C project? They're both based on C, but....

Unless the function calls for xalan have C bindings on them, the answer is no, I think. For example, if something like the following exists, then you can call some_xalan_function() from within Objective C. Otherwise, you will have to provide a C wrapper on top of xalan.

/* xalan_header_file.h */

#ifdef __cplusplus
extern "C" {
#endif

extern void some_xalan_function(...);

#ifdef __cplusplus
}
#endif

Okay. Thanks. I think that gets me to my answer.
