Comment is part of computer code that doesn't affect how the code is interpreted by the computer and is intended to hold information for humans that read the code (even though comments can sometimes contain additional information for computers such as metadata and autodocumentation information). There are comments in basically all programming languages, they usually start with //, #, /* and similar symbols, sometimes parts of code that don't fit the language syntax are ignored and as such can be used for comments.

Even though you should write nice, self documenting code, you should comment you source code as well. General tips on commenting:
