Due to the use of new as a variable name in the bee.h and irc.h header files, it is impossible to include them in a C++ source file. As there doesn't seem to be any rule against writing a plugin in C++, attached is a patch to fix this. I've also included wrapping the entire header file in an extern "C" if a C++ compiler is being used, to make the headers easier to include in a C++ plugin.

May I ask what plugin you're writing? :-)

Indeed, there are no policies against C++ - it's all your own choice, of course.

Awesome. Thanks!

I miss being notified by pidgin when I receive new email, so I'm trying to write an email 'protocol' to replace what I'm missing. The nicest looking mail/IMAP library I've found happens to be C++ only. If I have any sort of success, I'll be posting it up on #809.
