Three forms of comments are supported in NBC. The first form (traditional C comments) begin with '/*' and end with '* /'. These comments are allowed to span multiple lines, but they cannot be nested.
/* this is a comment */ /* this is a two line comment */ /* another comment... /* trying to nest... ending the inner comment...*/ this text is no longer a comment! */
The second form of comments supported in NXBC begins with '//' and continues to the end of the current line. These are sometimes known as C++ style comments.
// a single line comment
The third form of comments begins with ; and ends with a newline. This form is the traditional assembly language style comments.
; another single line comment
As you might guess, the compiler ignores comments. Their only purpose is to allow the programmer to document the source code.
