    if u r reading the file character by character..ignore the character read whenever there is a space ...tab...newline..or any other white space ...

    and if u store the contents in a buffer then traverse the buffer and remove whitespace before printing it ..

    to remove comments u should know what a comment in your file looks like..
    can a comment be multi-line comment or will it be a single line comment...
