    Preprocess C file

    Hello everyone I have a problem to solve and I need your help/suggestions
    I have a simple C code (program1.c)

    I need to create another program that takes the first one (program1.c), and when I find a line with comments (//), take them out . Then, after modified, the first program must be ready for compile.
    Its possible?

    Thanks!!

    Yes, it's possible. If you are only concerned with line-based comments, then it's pretty trivial as you can read line by line and just print each line until the part when the comment is found.

"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.
