## 1.2 Comment characters

Any bytes on a line after a line-comment sequence (// or #) are ignored up until the ASCII newline character (\n). They may thus be written in any character encoding which is convenient.

Any content after a block comment open sequence in ASCII (/*) up to the closing block comment (*/) is ignored, and thus may also be written in whatever character set is convenient.
