Is their a way to hide comment whatever the language used?

Like if I'm in cpp mode all /* ... */ should be hide and if I'm on LaTeX mode, all % ... will be hide.


The package hide-comnt available from Melpa (now marmalade) can do it:

M-x hide/show-comments-toggle

    hide-comnt doesn't seem to be there anymore. – nroose Apr 29 '19 at 17:08
  • @nroose see the edit. – Name Apr 30 '19 at 5:27
  • There are a few packages out there that attempt this, but hide-comnt is the only one I see that actually makes comments appear to be removed rather than just blanking out the lines and leaving a bunch of unwanted whitespace. – Micah Elliott Jan 29 '20 at 20:10
