These comments are used to annotate a single line of code. They start with // and extend until the end of the line.
These comments are used for longer explanations or for commenting out blocks of code. They are enclosed between /* and */.
- Documentation: They help explain the purpose of variables, functions, and code blocks, making it easier for other developers (and your future self) to understand the codebase.
- Debugging: Comments can be used to temporarily disable sections of code for testing or debugging purposes without deleting them.
- Collaboration: When working in a team, well-placed comments facilitate communication and collaboration between developers.
- Reminders: Comments can serve as reminders for tasks that need to be completed or issues that need to be addressed in the code.
