We show how our recent results on compositions of d.c. functions (and mappings) imply positive results on extensions of d.c. functions (and mappings). Examples answering two natural relevant questions are presented. Two further theorems, concerning extendability of continuous convex functions from a closed subspace of a normed linear space, complement recent results of J. Borwein, V. Montesinos and J. Vanderwerff.
Keywords: d.c. function, d.c. mapping, delta-convex mapping, convex function, extension, Banach space.
