Well, in 6.6 (the version I'm using) the "toggle block comment" does
nothing. Precisely nothing. I've tried it for Haskell, for sh scripts,
for Prolog and for awk. Nothing. For C++ it comments out using the line
comment type (for some reason). (There doesn't appear to be just a C
lexer; the C++ one is loaded instead and it comments out blocks with //
which is a bit of a problem in some compilers.)
