What is the name of the namespace in C source If I mix C and C++ source in vc .net?

P: n/a
I have an application in visual c++ . net, which involves both c and c++ source, my question is, which namespace is asigned to c sources?

I was able to see C variables with intellisense just by writting "::" before the variable name.

I assume you're using extern "C". C code isn't namespaced, therefore, in C++ code, it is available in the global namespace.

That's my understanding of it.

The global namespace "::" is the correct namespace.

I don't know about .net, but in standard C++, you need to be certain that your C source code declarations are prefixed with extern "C", or wrapped, like this
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. extern "C" double myFunc1(int j);
  2. extern "C"
  3. {
  4.   int myFunc2(int x, double i);
  5. };
