JQ issues with comments on Json file

i´m using JQ to work in bash with my json and when I read the json is throwing me an error

parse error: Invalid numeric literal at line 2, column 5=

Since my json has some comments

// comment
"spawn": {}

Iñve been seen looking the options and I cannot find any option to fix the problem.
Any idea how to solve it?


JSON and thus jq do not support comments (in the usual sense). The jq FAQ lists a number of tools that can be used to remove comments, including jsonlint, json5, and any-json. I'd recommend one that can act as a filter.

See for links and further details.
