The * (comment) command allows comment text to be embedded in sentences and paragraphs.





* {text}



A comment line has its first non-space character as an asterisk. There must be at least one space separating the asterisk from any text. The comment is ignored except that any inline prompt sequences within text will be executed. This enables prompts to be resolved in a convenient and logical order ahead of the need to use the responses.


Although comments are mainly used within stored paragraphs, they may be entered at the keyboard in response to the command prompt. The comment will be recorded in any active como file.


The value of @SYSTEM.RETURN.CODE is not affected by a comment.
