Generally, only people who write compilers, linkers and debuggers
know much about object file formats.

Can the linker link mixed C and C++ object files together?

I know of no system that uses different object file formats for
different languages.
Since C++ "imports" most of libc via <cstdlib>, if such a system
existed, it would have to provide two implementations of libc --
one for C, and another for C++. Not very likely to ever happen.
