M-; runs the command comment-dwim
which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `newcomment.el'.
It is bound to M-;.
Call the comment command you want (Do What I Mean).
If the region is active and `transient-mark-mode' is on, call
`comment-region' (unless it only consists of comments, in which
case it calls `uncomment-region').
Else, if the current line is empty, insert a comment and indent it.
Else if a prefix arg is specified, call `comment-kill'.
Else, call `comment-indent'.
You can configure `comment-style' to change the way regions are commented.
Google 'ESS comment region' for more discussion.
