Parse error on //*

Hi all,

I'm trying to build a simple source code transformation tool. I'm
having problems getting the parser to accept single-line comments that
start with an asterisk. Even a file containing only the three
characters "//*" fails, while one with "// *" succeeds. The error I
get is

comment.c:1:1: error: expected identifier or '('

followed by an assertion failure I get on any diagnostic (setting
breakpoints reveals that TextDiagnosticPrinter::BeginSourceFile never
gets called, which is probably related):

assertion "LangOpts && "Unexpected diagnostic outside source file
processing"" failed: file "TextDiagnosticPrinter.cpp", line 282,
function: void clang::TextDiagnosticPrinter::EmitCaretDiagnostic(clang::SourceLocation,
clang::SourceRange*, unsigned int, clang::SourceManager&, const
clang::CodeModificationHint*, unsigned int, unsigned int)
Stack dump:
0. comment.c:1:1: current parser token '/'
Aborted

Funny thing is, Lexer/c90.c passes. I've minimized my program to the
code below. I've tried to explicitly set C99 to 1 in the LangOptions,
but with no success. I'm using revision 98818 on Cygwin. Any ideas of
what goes wrong?

Best regards

Hi,

I've tried to explicitly set C99 to 1 in the LangOptions,
but with no success.

Solved it by setting LangOptions::BCPLComment to 1. I thought
//-comments would be implied by LangOptions::C99, but it's not.
