Can we use function on left side of an expression in C and C++?

In C, it might not be possible to have function names on left side of an expression, but it’s possible in C++.

#include<iostream>
  
using namespace std;
  
/* such a function will not be safe if x is non static variable of it */
int &fun()
{
   static int x; 
   return x;
}    
  
int main()
{
   fun() = 10;
  
   /* this line prints 10 on screen */
   printf(" %d ", fun());
  
   getchar();
   return 0;
}
