Oh I see.  Is there a way perhaps  to set a flag so that only one or the
other is used without any type of auto detecting? 

Thanks for the fast response!

SAS has two different syntaxes for comments.

*  this is a comment ;

/* this is a
   comment   */

The emacs techniques for detecting comments for the autocomment
function gets confused and does both simultaneously.  We are aware
of the problem.  We haven't figured out how to do it correctly.
