According to the ANSI C translation phase rules, comments are replaced with
a single space before preprocessing directives are executed.  So the above
line "should" be viewed as a preprocessing directive, at least in ANSI C.

/**/ is used as a paste token in early K&R pre-processors. Thus
any pair of tokens connected by only /**/ would be pasted together.
/* */ is treated as white space which is the ANSI convention for
/**/.

ANSI replaced it by ## we think.

Hope this adds more information than noise.

Howard.

Some of us have been trying to install the Netware for RS6000 using 530H
box. We are running into some problems with establishing connectivity
between an existing PC LAN(Banyan) and new Novell on RS6000. If anyone
knows about any gateway software please send the mail at following
address:

Two networks have following configurations :

Novell  : File server on RS6000
          Running TOKEN-RING to IBM's MAU thru IBM type 1 cable.
          Ring speed is 16mbps.
          PC Workstations using ODI are connected to MAU.

BANYAN  : File server on Compaq's 386
          Running TOKEN-RING to IBM' MAU but not with type 1 cable(UTP).
          Ring speed is 4mbps.
          Multiple rings are connected of PC workstations using IPX.COM
          and/or IPXODI.COM.

 
 
 

1. Building X11R5pl9 under AIX 3.2... UNIXCONN problems...

Well the X11R5 builds under AIX 3.2 without problem.  However the the
clients and server do not seem to be able to use the unix sockets
connections but TCP/IP connections work.  I am using the same sources
I used to build under AIX 3.1.

xinit gets a "waiting for X server to begin acceptin connections."
and waits forever.

xclock X11R5 client under the X11R4 server:

        xclock gets a "Error: Can't open display: unix:0"

        DISPLAY=hostname:0 xclock works.

I'm going to look into it farther but I don't really know where
to start.  Any suggestions?
