The REMARK statement, which may be abbreviated to REM, enters comment text into a program.
The REMARK statement inserts text as a comment in the program which is totally ignored by the compiler. The semicolon delimiter cannot be used to include an executable statement on the same line as a REMARK as the entire line after the REMARK keyword is ignored.
Comments are more usually inserted using the an asterisk or exclamation mark prefix.
REMARK This text is totally ignored
* This text is totally ignored
! This text is totally ignored
A = B + C ;* This is a trailing comment
