I''ve been looking at jobs for programming and software development and most of them say "Applicant must have experience in C/C++". Now, the thing is, I am quite a good deal through learning C++ (i.e. just got to grips with classes, inheritance, polymorphism, pointers etc.) However is it still necessary for me to learn C since it states that in the job description? And if I was to proceed towards learning C how long would you estimate it would take?

Now a lot of people nowdays see C and C++ as two separate languages, and maybe they are right, since the programming methods and procedures in both languages are different (due to C++''s OO heritage).

But, I still see it as if C++ is pure C but with OO. Meaning, as long as you can program in C++ without using classes, references, etc... then you can apply.

I wouldn''t let it stop you from applying for the job.
If you know C++ you can do C if needed.

Usually employers put C/C++ even though its 90% C++ but there may be legacy driver code that is in C
