Wtf does flex/yacc produce incompliant comments?
Seriously, COMMENTS!
That's a convenience thing.

int foo = bar; // bar defined in wherever

is simpler than

int foo = bar; /* bar defined in wherever */

but a code generator isn't lazy.
There must be a way to avoid that?

Otherwise one might convince them to create cpp/cxx suffixes so that compilers will invoke the C++ compiler?
