Comments in C++

Generally Comments are used to provide the description about the Logic written in program. Comments are not display on output screen.

  • Single line comments
  • Multiple line comments

Single line comments

Single line comments can be provided by using / /....................

Multiple line comments

Multiple line comments can be provided by using /*......................*/

Note: When we are working with the multiple line comments then nested comments are not possible.

Rules for Writing Comments

1. Program contains any number of comments at any place.

Example

// header files
#include<iostream.h>
#include<conio.h>

void main()
{
// variable declaration
int a,b,c;
a=10;
b=20;
c=a+b;
cout<<"Sum: "<<c;
getch();
}

2. Nested Comments are not possible, that means comments within comments.

Example

void main()
{
/*
/*      comments   */
*/
}

3. Comments can be splits over more than one line.

Example

void main()
{
/* main   
   function
   body part
*/
}

4. Comments are not case sensitive.

Example

void main()
{

/*  MAIN Function BODY   */

}

5. Single line comments start with "//"
