There are two different comment styles in C++: block commenting and line commenting.

A block comment requires the beginning of the block to be marked with "/*" and ended with "*/", like this...
  
/*
... this is a block comment
*/


A line comment begins with a "//" symbol and ends at the next carriage return:
  
// this is a line comment


So, the comment which looks like "//*" is actually a line comment. The asterisk forms part of the commented-out section.

"/*" is the beginning of a comment block.

"//***" is another line comment where the three asterisks are commented-out.

"//**" is yet another line comment where two asterisks are commented-out.
