Is there a convention for marking the beginning of LaTeX-based material placed inside the comments of (say) a C++ or Python program? Or does one simply jump into LaTeX syntax?

    In python, you can use sphinx for documentation, which uses .. math:: for equations by default. – eudoxos Sep 27 '11 at 15:20

In doxygen the convention is to explain TeX environments with \f.

As doxygen documentation goes in comments, you might call this convention for comments, though it is more convention for in-code documentation.
