Re: hightlight if/ifdef blocks

originally I asked somebody about using // or /* */ in C.
1. old c-compilers do not allow the use of // because it was not part
of the "old" ANSI c standard.
2. new c-compilers mostly do, but some people still prefer to use /* */

My idea was to use // in "regular" comments and /* */ for commenting
out huge blocks of code.
I was then told that nesting of comments might or might not work with
the one or the other compiler.
To avoid this uncertainty I should use #if 0 which I think makes sense
and is ok for me. (can't find the post though, sorry ...)
However, emacs does not show me these blocks as "unused" comments, but
as c-code.
So, back to my original question ... how to get these blocks to change
their color :-)
