Comments in AutoIt scripts

3 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

Comments in AutoIt scripts can be both # and ; ?

Both # and ; are comment characters in AutoIt scripts it seems..

Can they be used interchangbly?

Or I am wrong and ; is the ONLY comment character

I know about multiline #ce/e comments.. I am verifying about single line characters...

Yes and no The # is used primarily for defining Regions and AutoIt3Wrapper directives If there is nothing recognizable after the # then there is nothing to read so it just gets ignored. Better stick to the semi-colon before you really get messed up down the road when more directives get added.

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.
