    Description

      I use CQLSH command line utility to load some DDLs. The version of utility I use is this:

      [cqlsh 6.0.0 | Cassandra 4.0.0.47 | CQL spec 3.4.5 | Native protocol v5]

      Command that loads DDL.cql:

      cqlsh -u username -p password cassandra.example.com 65503 --ssl -f DDL.cql
      

      I have a line in CQL script that breaks the syntax.

      INSERT into tablename (key,columnname1,columnname2) VALUES ('keyName','value1','/value2/*/value3');

      /* here is interpreted as start of multi-line comment. It used to work on older versions of cqlsh. The error I see looks like this:

      SyntaxException: line 4:2 mismatched input 'Update' expecting ')' (...,'value1','/value2INSERT into tablename(INSERT into tablename (key,columnname1,columnname2)) VALUES ('[Update]-...) SyntaxException: line 1:0 no viable alternative at input '(' ([(]...)
      

      Same behavior while running in interactive mode too. /* inside a CQL statement should not be interpreted as start of multi-line comment.
