I am not sure that is correct. Accessing structures and members of structures comes to mind.
C++ is a crime against humanity, a sad failed attempt to change C into an object oriented language. C++ is the reason for all bloated software in the known universe, including, but not limited to, Mikeysoft.
Just a question, now that all of you are ready to throw pies, did any of you guys ever read Dr Dobbs magazine long ago? I always found that inspiring, for sure some software coding methods in C I picked up from that. Not sure what became of it, stopped reading it when the world wide spiders took over, as google and wikipedia answer most questions. stackexchange.com is for example a good site. Linked lists in C in Dr Dobbs comes to mind. There is no need for C++, really, Linus does not want it in the kernel either. And of course the power of C is in the libraries, libc, there are many, for almost anything. If you want to write a new language than you have to supply libraries. The other point is portability, C runs on - there is a compiler for, almost any platform. Unfortunately these days people invest time in snakes, some dangerous like Pythons, not in languages close to the hardware they actually use. My take.
