          Issue ID: 19298

Having a file

 * ---

 * ---

void main()


Trying to get documentation as
dmd -o- -w -Dddocs main.d

Leads to the warning

(1): Warning: C preprocessor directive #Comment is not supported

I understand that it's supposed to be a valid D code inside DDoc comment, but
dmd should at least report the file name where error happened. Also the meaning
of the number in parentheses is not obvious.

I found a similar issue https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18836 marked
as solved but dmd needs improvements on reporting this error: report the file
name and position of so-called directive in the code, so users could find the
cause of warning.
