python extend c++ module

I have written a c++ extend module and I use distutils to build.
from distutils.core import setup, Extension

setup(name="noddy", version="1.0",
Extension("noddy3", ["noddy3.cpp", "a.cpp"])

I found it's quite strange when compiling. I didn't use extern "C" at all
, how can python get the right c++ funciton name without any compile error??

I found that it first use gcc to compile noddy3.cpp and then link by g++.

Could anyone explain what it's all about?

Thanks a lot!!

here is the compiling message.
