Question about /usr/include/bits/typesizes.h

I need to recompile apache to allow for more then 1024 files opened, following this guide that tells me to edit this file which has to do with glib

/* Number of descriptors that can fit in an `fd_set'. */
#define __FD_SETSIZE 32768

I've changed 1024 to 32768 as above.

Now I'm no programmer, but I understand that the "#" means it's commented out, however I find it a bit strange that every single line in this file hasa '#' in front of it.
So is there a purpose to those # symboles in this file?

I'm not sure whether I should take out this # or not?

Re: Question about /usr/include/bits/typesizes.h

# is a comment in bash. In C, # means that this is a pre-compiler command.
Comments in C are
are no comments at all...
If you remove the # then the compiler will complain about errors
