   A "comment" is text that is written in a program only for the sake
of humans that read the program, and that has no effect on the meaning

is not within a string or character constant, and continues to the end
of line.  Comments are discarded by the Lisp reader, and do not become
part of the Lisp objects which represent the program within the Lisp
