Coding Trick of the Day: The Comment Swapper

On many occasion when I am programming, I want to test out a piece of code, then try another one, and go back and forth between the two. Sometimes, it’s to compare performance, other times I just want to compare the behaviors (It happens very often when testing animation).

It can be tedious to constantly comment/uncomment code. But thanks to the “Comment Swapper”, I can do this in one keystroke!

1   //*******
2   object.foobar1();
3   /*/
4   object.foobar2();
5   //*/

Try it out: by deleting/adding the slash (/) character at the beginning of line 1, you can instantly swap between the two chunks of code.
