Hard to understand your post. It looks like you have a keyboard error also

I'm not sure comments are done like this:

// always|auto|prompt|never

so replace this:
Clean "never"; // always|auto|prompt|never

Clean "never";

That's for the syntax. Now the contents I don't know, I don't use this options.

// at the beginning of a line is a comment.

Probably the caracter ';' ends a line and then my advice is crap.
