Purpose

Comment block


Syntax

/* <statements> */


See Also

&&, *, //


Description

The /*...*/ command allows comment blocks to be inserted in programs to enhance their readability and maintainability. The /* denotes the start of the comment block, the */ the end of the comment block. All characters between the two comment block delimiters are treated as comments and ignored. The /*...*/ command differs from the // command, and the && command, in that it can deal with multi-line comments.


Example

/* open the table
and view in name order */
use patrons index names
