User Program Communication
Commenting in C++
Comments are blocks or lines of text ignored by the compiler, used to provide notes about the code.
// Single line comment /* Block comment */
Can be used for documentation, code descriptions, resource inclusion, readability, debugging, and any other note that the programmer would like to include.
For the // comment, the compiler will ignore everything from // to the end of the line.
For the /* */ comment, the compiler will ignore anything from /* to */.
cout << "I think I am cool"; //Outputs the string: I think I am cool! /*Outputs the string: Because I am */ cout << "Because I am";
