Commands and Statements

Command NOTE Foundation

Identifies a comment line in the source code.

NOTE [<Comment>]
<Comment> is any one line of text in the source code. It will be ignored by the compiler.

NOTE identifies a line in the program source code as a comment and indicates that it should not be compiled. This command exists only for compatibility reasons. A comment line should be identified with an asterisk (*) at the beginning of the line instead of using NOTE.

Comments that are longer than one line are excluded from compilation using the character pairs /* (begin comment) and */ (end comment). Inline comments can be identified by the characters // or &&.
