There are several occurrences of comments starting with  "/**", for
example src/tds/mem.c (last line), src/tds/token.c, read.c, write.c
I just tried compiling the current CVS source and my compiler doesn't
stop barking:

mem.c:1596:3704: warning: "/*" within comment
mem.c:2015:1: warning: null character(s) ignored
mem.c:2015: error: stray '\4' in program
mem.c:2015: error: stray '\16' in program
mem.c:2015:3693: warning: null character(s) ignored
mem.c:2015:3698: invalid suffix "Ff" on integer constant
mem.c:2015: error: stray '\210' in program

After removing these traps things don't look that bad - unfortunately I
don't have any Sybase server at home so I cant' test this build (does
anyone have a cheap ASE for AIX ?  ;-)

 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
