Comment-Before Character

Keywords: semicolon comment Cc:

Description

I propose a comment character that will comment out code that appears before the occurence of the character.

Ex:

Global <comment character> Local $variable = _function()

I'm sure there could be better uses than the example that I came up with here. As far as any available characters that could be used... ? Maybe a char combination of an exclamation and a semicolon (!;).

What practical purpose does this serve? People write and read code left-to-write. You do not want to read a piece of code only to learn it was just a comment. That makes no sense.

Because the commented code will be greyed out...

That last comment was me btw

I guess the most practical purpose would be rapidly comment out a suspicious section of one line of code to see if it is causing any problems.
