To ankush:

Note that perl DOES allow multiline comments, using POD syntax.

with sed, you can do this:

sed '\|/\*|,\|\*/|s/^/#/'

that assumes your comments always span more than one line (ie, the opening /* and the closing */ are on different lines). Otherwise, you can do this:

sed '\|/\*|{:a;s/^/#/;\|\*/|!{n;ba;}}'

(good luck reading that!)

Note that both solutions are VERY fragile, and will break under a number of conditions.
