NAME

ccmtcnvt - convert C++ comments to C comments

SYNOPSIS

ccmtcnvt [-hv] [--help] [--version] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION

This program converts the C++ style comments into traditional C style comments. C++ allows comments of that begin with `//' and end with the next newline, but they weren't introduced to the C language until the 1999 version of the C standard. Some C compilers alre3ady accept these, but for those who don't, you can use this utility to convert them.

BUGS

ccmtcnvt assumes that the input is syntactically correct C code (except for the comments).
