Quick question, it there a difference between:
/* This is first line of comments
This is the second line
And this will be the last line
/*This is first line of comments
*This is the second line
*And this will be the last line
There is no difference at all as far as the compiler is concerned. It's just a matter of what looks pretty and what documentation generators rely upon. That last point is surprisingly important: particularly in Java. (Javadoc relies upon well-defined comment forms.)
/* defines the start of a comment, and you'll stay in "comment mode" until the first
*/ is reached.
/* are allowed within a comment block (but they don't nest so you still only need one closing
*/). And the single line comment
// within a comment block is benign:
//*/ will close a comment block.
