Windows MS-DOS very useful programming environment for Windows family operating system. In order to complete jobs easier, faster, and with less error system administrators generally use batch scripts. In order to remember or understand commands and functions written to the batch script we generally use comments or comment block. In this tutorial, we will look at how to create comments.
Single Line Comment
We will start by showing a single line comment. rem is the keyword used by MS-DOS in order t specify the comment line. The comment line will start with rem keyword and we have to put a single space to start the comment part. In this example, we will write comment
This is comment . As we know comments are not executed or interpreted like other commands. They are just text to explain code.
rem This is comment
Multiple Line or Block Comment
We can also provide multi line or block comment by using multiple
rem keyword in a row like below. Below we will use multiple
rem keyword which will look like a block of comment but in reality they are multiple single line comments.
rem This is a comment rem This is a comment too rem This too
:: Comment Line
We can also use
:: as comment sign like
rem . We will use
:: as line starter and write a comment after that. We can also use it multiple lines for block comments too.
:: This is a comment :: This is a comment too
