You can tell by ripping the source code.
Where are you getting the source code from?

But I do hear where you're coming from. It's just that I've always looked at it as a tradeoff:

- the more advanced language is usually more efficient for programmers but can produce a less efficient binary

- the less advanced language is usually less efficient for programmers but can produce a more efficient binary

Granted, these are rough generalizations on my part, but I would judge more based on the skill of the programmer than on the language used.

That is, I would prefer the product of an elite programmer using C rather than the product of a mediocre programmer using C++. It's all about the end product.
