at times i need to comment out a number of lines, usually with * and remove the * later to activate the commands.

is there a simple way to remove and add the * to a number of line at one go?
If your using Emacs/ESS (independent of your OS) highlight the section you want to comment out and 'M-x comment-region' will toggle commenting on. To remove it use the antonym 'M-x uncomment-region'
