10.2.8 Comment String Label and Macro Symbols

A few miscellaneous syntactic symbols that haven't been previously covered are illustrated by this C++ example:

      1: void Bass::play( int volume )
      2: const
      3: {
      4:     /* this line starts a multiline
      5:      * comment.  This line should get `c' syntax */
      6:
      7:     char* a_multiline_string = "This line starts a multiline \
      8: string.  This line should get `string' syntax.";
      9:
     10:   note:
     11:     {
     12: #ifdef LOCK
     13:         Lock acquire();
     14: #endif // LOCK
     15:         slap_pop();
     16:         cout << "I played "
     17:              << "a note\n";
     18:     }
     19: }
