Well, <cctype> is the Right header for C++.
However, I tried it, and it works for me, both with <ctype.h> and <cctype>. 
In either case, it goes like

$ g++3 -g3 -fPIC -c mylib.cc
$ g++3 -shared mylib.o -o libmylib.so
$ g++3 -g3 -fPIC -c mytest.cc
$ g++3 mytest.o -L. -lmylib -o mytest
$ ./mytest
Enter number 1 ->> 12

Enter number 2 ->> 30

12 + 30 = 42
