Thanks to John Gardner, an improved version of the script is available at:

http://dataninja.wordpress.com/2008/09/27/unified-generic-commentuncomment-scripts/

The new script happily borrows techniques from John's original Comment and Uncomment scripts (http://dataninja.wordpress.com/2006/05/08/textwrangler-uncomment-scripts-for-stata/ ).

It is a) faster and b) "generic", in that it will recognize other languages. R and LaTex are currently included and it is easy to add more.

The script determines if the first character of a selection starts a comment or not; if not, a comment is added to every line of the selection; if not, a comment present at the start of a line is deleted.

Note that "comment" here means "// " (space following the slashes)

Other points.

--To add comments, start the selection in a line that is not commented.

--To delete comments, start the selection with a commented line.

--If nothing is selected, the script will comment or uncomment the current line.
