Pleas read the question, i think the program has to tell whether nesting of comments is allowed by the compiler or not.

@ozo - I am *impressed*!!

@searchsanjaysharma have you tried compiling this as the only code line in a program?  Just include stdio.h and add the "int main" bits round this code, compile and run.
