COMMENT or #
Inserts a comment into a command stream or user command.
Text Information composing the comment text. If the last
nonblank character is an ampersand (&), comment text
is continued onto the next line. Default is that a
record containing only the string "comment" is
inserted in the command stream.
The COMMENT command allows you to include an explanation about the
purpose of commands or the logic used in job listings produced on
hard copy devices. It is also used to create job headings. After
the COMMENT command is entered, it can be followed by a message
made up of any ASCII characters.
In place of the COMMENT command, you may enter the pound sign
(#) to indicate a comment line.
This command may be issued from a session, job, program, or
in break. Pressing [break] has no effect on this command.
The following example of a job heading employs a comment:
!COMMENT -- This is a sample job
Or, to use the pound sign, you would enter:
!# -- This is a sample job
