    It's that the same header can be used both in C and C++.

    If you're calling a function, for example in a library, that was compiled using a C compiler, you may end up getting linker errors, because C compilers mangle function names differently than C++ compilers. You can get around that by declaring the prototype to the C function as extern "C" - that way the C++ compiler knows it's a C-compiled function and mangles the function name for the call appropriately.
