# How To Use C++ With PSoC Creator

Article by:

## Contents

Ever wanted to write C++ for the PSoC 5 or 5LP chips in PSoC Creator?

Well, although PSoC Creator doesn’t natively support it, you can quite easily do a few ‘hacks’, and you’ll be writing in C++ in no time.

A new page Using C++ With PSoC Creator, explains the steps required to compile C++ code in Cypress’s PSoC Creator.

It covers the four main steps:

1. Compiling with G++ rather than GCC using custom compiler flags

2. Wrapping C code with guards:

 1  extern C{< C code goes here>} 
3. Defining the operators new and delete (this is optional)

 1  void* operator new(size_t size) 
4. Prevent Exception Functionality

Preventing exception functionality to prevent linker errors such as undefined reference to __gxx_personality_v0 and undefined reference to __cxa_end_cleanup (again, this is optional, and only applied if you want to use new and delete)

The steps have pictures and code examples to help you through the process.
