I have found the following code works in both my Pretty Diff application and the JSLint tool:
/*prettydiff.com api.topcoms: true*/
var a; //arbitrary code here
/*throw away comment here*/
I would have thought JSLint would throw an error for multiple uses of the "var" keyword in any single scope, but apparently not in the global scope.
