System Feature comment Purpose Specifies comment within command lines. Syntax # [ <comment> ] Description The sharp sign (#) is the comment character. Any text starting with the comment character, till the end of the line, is considered a comment. Generous use of comments in a program makes the program much more readable, and therefore, much more reusable. Restrictions When the comment character is not intended to be the start of a comment, enclose it in double quotes. Valid Examples echo $fileCount # fileCount is the number of files # matching our criteria. Invalid Examples echo Customer# $custNumber If the intent is to print the word customer# followed by the value of variable $custNumber, it will not be served. Only the word Customer will be printed. Use the following instead. echo "Customer#" $custNumber See Also constant var
