bc start with the characters
/* and end with
*/. Comments may start anywhere and appear as a
single space in the input. (This causes comments to delimit other
input items. For example, a comment can not be found in the middle of
a variable name.) Comments include any newlines (end of line) between
the start and the end of the comment.
To support the use of scripts for
bc, a single line comment has been
added as an extension. A single line comment starts at a
character and continues to the next end of the line. The end of line
character is not part of the comment and is processed normally.
