Code comments

Use the following notation to include comments in CQL code:

  • For a single line or end of a line, place a double hyphen (--) before the text to comment out the rest of the line:

    SELECT * FROM cycling.race_winners; -- End of line comment
  • For a single line or end of a line, place a double forward slash (//) before the text to comment out the rest of the line:

    SELECT * FROM cycling.race_winners; // End of line comment
  • For a block of comments, put a forward slash asterisk (/) at the beginning of the comment and then asterisk forward slash (/) at the end.

    /* This is a 
       comment that spans multiple
       lines */
    SELECT * FROM cycling.race_winners;
