1.3.4 Comments
End-of-line comments in CoCoA start with either -- or // ; all text up to the end of the line is considered comment. CoCoA also allows embedded comments; these begin with the symbol /* and end with the symbol */ . CoCoA ignores the contents of a comment, and treats it as if it were just a space.

Example
/**/  // This is an end-of-line comment
/**/  Print 1+1; -- a command followed by an end-of-comment
2
/**/  A := [1 /*x-coord*/, 2 /*y-coord*/ ]; --> embedded comments
