This nice trick extends into://*/block 1/*/block 2; // commented out/*/block 3;/*/block 4; // commented out//*/and removing the first slash gives inverted alternation:/*/block 1; // commented out/*/block 2;/*/block 3; // commented out/*/block...
This nice trick extends into:

<pre lang="c#">//*/<br />
block 1<br />
/*/<br />
block 2; // commented out<br />
/*/<br />
block 3;<br />
/*/<br />
block 4; // commented out<br />
//*/</pre>


and removing the first slash gives inverted alternation:

<pre lang="c#">/*/<br />
block 1; // commented out<br />
/*/<br />
block 2;<br />
/*/<br />
block 3; // commented out<br />
/*/<br />
block 4;<br />
//*/</pre>


This enables you to alternate between odd and even sequential blocks :). It will extend to infinite count of blocks! Even more curious but sometimes usefull nonetheless, alternation can be switched wherever you like:

<pre lang="c#">/*/<br />
block 1; // commented out<br />
/*/<br />
block 2;<br />
/*/<br />
block 3; // commented out<br />
/*/<br />
block 4;<br />
/*/<br />
block 5; // commented out<br />
/*/<br />
block 6;<br />
//*/</pre>


can be switched into:

<pre lang="c#">/*/<br />
block 1; // commented out<br />
/*/<br />
block 2;<br />
/*/<br />
block 3; // commented out<br />
/*/<br />
block 4;<br />
//*/<br />
block 5;<br />
/*/<br />
block 6; // commented out<br />
//*/</pre>
