looks like works same as functions in JS but unlike in JS, we don’t need to call main() to invoke the result?

What is difference between single line comment and multi line comment?

It sort of depends on the use you want to make of it.

A single-line is usually a quick explanation, or perhaps a reminder, or even just to “comment out” a part of your code (such as a line –for testing purposes– for example).

Multi-line would be when there are longer explanations to be provided. Usually found at the top of the page. They can also be useful to comment out bigger parts of your program.

Hope this answers your question?
