Description nata-tsyb 2013-03-20 11:48:26 UTC
If there is a verbatim string with "#define" word inside #if directive
and the macro that is specified as the parameter is not defined, error occurs:
"Cannot define or undefine preprocessor symbols after first token in file".

Sample code:

using System;
class main
#if D
     static string s = @"Test string
     static string s2 = @"Test2";
     public static void Main()

Sample works if D is defined, and doesn't work if D is not defined.
