As if you haven't already gotten enough help and such, I'd like to give you another alternative that will be handy in the future too. Please note however that this only applies if you're using VIM.

1) Place your cursor on top of the first character you want to put the comment in front of (in your example, which I left above, that would on top of the 'd' in "define")
2) Hit Ctrl-v (this places the editor in visual mode)
3) Hit 'j', or use the down arrows, until your highlighted section is on top of the last character you want the comment in front of (in your example, it is the closing '}')
4) Hit Shift-I
5) Type a single '#'
6) Hit escape

After hitting escape, you'll have a new column of '#' characters in front of every character in that vertical column. Also, one of your first respondents mentioned a mailing list at vim.org (I believe, going off memory), you can also get great vi/vim advice from comp.editors. They discuss all kinds of editors there, but the group is mainly vi dominated.

Hope this helps,
