KB101502

Languages Focus: Comments

Commenting code generally has three purposes: to document your code, for psuedo coding prior to coding, and to embed compiler directives. Most languages support both a single line comment and a multiple line comment. Some languages also use comments to give instructions to the compiler or interpreter.

C++ Comments

Commenting Code
C++ uses "//" for a single line comment and /* */ for a multiple line comment.

Syntax Example:
//Single line comment in MS (not ANSI compliant so do NOT use).
/* ANSI compliant single line comment. */
/*
Multiple line
comment.
*/
  
/*
* This is another popular
* way to write multi-line
* comments.
*/
