Verve has C-style comments, with // for single line comments and /* */ for multiline comments.

For single line comments, between the // and the end of the line will be ignored:

// this is a single line comment

x // this is a comment about x

Multiline comments, despite the name, need not be multiline. Everything between the opening (/*) and closing (*/) will be ignored.

  This can be a very long multiline comment

x /* or single line */ + y
