I have been trying to learn C via self-study. I have been reading this forum for a couple months now and have purchased a couple books on C, as well as a training course on CD. I have Dev C++ version 22.214.171.124 and have a question pertaining to the use of comments in the IDE.
I thought that the C++ style comment style (//) was adopted in the latest ANSI C standards, in place of the traditional (/*) commenting symbols. However when I try this the compiler does not like it...what I am doing wrong? What setting in the 'Tools' menu do I need to enable to allow this style of commenting; if it is indeed possible?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
