SPSS Syntax Language Comments

Part of the SPSS For Dummies Cheat Sheet

You can insert descriptive text, called a comment, into your program. This text doesn't do anything except help make things clear when you read (or somebody else reads) your code. You start a comment the same way you start any other command: on its own line by using the keyword COMMENT or an asterisk or an asterisk-slash. The comment is terminated by a period. For example:

COMMENT This is a comment and will not be executed.
* This is a comment and will continue to be
  a comment until the terminating period.
/* This is a comment and will continue to be
  a comment until the terminating asterisk-slash */
