How multi line comments differ from single line comments

Kindly don't add symbolic difference, explain the advantage.

Multiline comments can be done as // comment line 1 // comment line 2 // comment line 3 and they don't accidentally go too far. /* comment 1 x++; /* comment 2 */ In this example, x doesn't get incremented. Given the number of times in Pascal code these bugs slipped in a huge project I worked on, I refuse to use them, unless I truly need an inline comment.

Actually, there is one reason I used a multiline comment. c = 3.14 /* pi */ * 2 * r; It lets you sneak a comment within a code statement.

It is easy to forget to close the multiline comment and end up having code you believe is executed not be. Otherwise, there isn't a difference.

Multiline comments can be more than one line, single libe comments can be used in a single line before it starts a code again
