What happens if there is a comment in header file name?
Parsing of `#include’ is slightly special because comments are not recognized within the ”. Thus, in `#include ‘ the `/*’ does not start a comment and the directive specifies inclusion of a system header file named `x/*y’. Of course, a header file with such a name is unlikely to exist on Unix, where shell wildcard features would make it hard to manipulate.
Below are some examples.
This will compile
Error: stdio.h/*comment*/: No such file or directory
Error: std/*comment*/io.h: No such file or directory
