This depends on your compiler and if 'strict' is applied.

C99 introduced several new features, (..) and support for one-line comments beginning with //, as in BCPL or C++. Many of these had already been implemented as extensions in several C compilers.

  • it's supported as my compiler is gcc and i use std99
