Re: Surely....

The best you can hope for with comments in source code is that they don't contradict the source code...

On the contrary. When they contradict the source code, they offer valuable clues as to how the code has evolved, and useful hooks for searching the change control archives.

Or into the thought processes of the developer, if they are contemporaneous.
