Hi there;

I am dealing massive amount code both in C# and Java.
The codes are very well commented but sometimes I add some silly comments to track during running.

So;

Is there any program/module that shows the comments in total in the source code in C# and Java?

Kind regards.

When compiled the comments lines should be removed (just excess baggage, they don't do anything).
So if I understand your requirement correctly - no.


ps.  Comments are not the same as output to trace for example.

For comments with // and /* there is no built in tool available. But for XML documentation (with ///) there is build in option there to generate the documentation file.

If you want to get the // and /* comments then write a program using regex.

If you need to track anything during runtime
you don't want to add comments but
you should add suh line


System.out.println("youur comment specifying the location in the program");  //printout

After you debugged your program it is easy to find all
lines with //printout
and delete them or comment them out from the start of the line

I am of course writing about Java; I'm sure you can do something similar in C#

Yes, it is called Trace (see the first comment)

I assume you mean some kind of runtime output.

Any professional code has logging built into it. If you're using C# as well, i suggest using log4j and log4net
