C project
This does not select a source language by default and leaves this decision up to the compiler. Both GCC and ARM Compiler default to C for .c files and C++ for .cpp files.
C++ project
Selects C++ as the source language by default, regardless of file extension.
In both cases, the source language for the entire project, a source directory or individual source file can be configured in the build configuration settings.
