Can I put comments in string literals in C?
What happens if your C string literal contains comment-like delimiters?
char* my_str = "some /*string*/ with a URL https://www.google.com";
Thankfully, this “works”. That is, this program is the same as:
char* my_str = "some /" "*string*" "/ with a URL https:/" "/www.google.com";
I was concerned, because one syntax highlighter (Pygments) screws this up.
