Yeah, C is also more efficient than C++. I have added this task to TODO, so, probably in the following weeks, I will change the project to pure C.

BTW, Makefile support has been added, and it works correctly. is also updated accordingly, so you can have a try in case I missed anything. : )

CMake still lives in the project just for my personal preference. I will maintain both building scripts, so we can keep both of them.

Will reopen this issue, if we decide to replace googletesting
