[geos-devel] regarding GEOS C++ API in ThirdParty

Hi all,

I have some questions regarding GEOS C++ API.  From readme[1],
 GEOS C++ API is deprecated and not recommended for use in third party
libraries. But most of examples and test are still in C++ and C++ api still
exists and used in tests. The reason for this is goes itself can use c++
interface but I want to is that the only reason for keeping c++ interface?

If a third party already uses C++ interface is it recommended to move to C

Lastly if there is a migration guide that must be read before changing to C

[1] https://github.com/libgeos/libgeos


The C libary uses the C++ interface, but the
C library follows normal ABI-change-sensitive versioning, so programs
that link only against the C library should work without relinking
when geos is upgraded.)
