Rexx has loose coding standards, and I doubt anything like this exist.

May be a time to get in contact with your site-support group to know about "coding-standards" in general and then eventually about REXX.

I am not sure if this is true anymore or not, but long ago I read that comment boxes were wasteful because of the way the rexx interpreter searched for the end of the comment.
For example:
Code:

/******************/
/* some comment   */
/******************/

Each time it found an asterisk, it checked to see if the next character was a slash to determine if that was the end of the comment.

The recommendation was to avoid that style of comment boxes. Instead, use dashes (or other character) and to use a single start and single end, such as:
Code:

/*------------------
|  some comment    |
------------------*/
