It may be too late to reconsider commenting syntax but I just thought I’d throw this out there… I’ve been thinking about it for some time. In order to type
#= =# I have to use:
(1) left hand pinky + index
(2) right hand pinky + index
(3) grab the mouse and select the end of the line (In the case the text is already written)
(4) move right hand back to keyboard and use pinky + index
(5) left hand pinky + index
I live in a Spanish-Language country and so the keyboard layout is a bit different, mainly for punctuation. I can’t remember where everything is on the English language keyboard so this may not be a problem for some.
I really like JS comment syntax (
/* */ ) just for its ease of use …the two keys are right beside each other.
Of course, I can continue using
#= =# if that’s the way it has to be …also I recognise that many editors have
/ (as per Juno), which is slightly more convenient but still requires both hands. I’m not sure if this effects enough people to merit more attention but thought I’d mention it.
