PHP Comments

Good programmers write perfect code with plenty of comments.

  • Comments are used to understand the code while reading.
  • They can also be used to leave a part from the code.
  • Comments are really important when trying to understand other's or your own code after years.
  • Comments can explain what the code does.
  • Comments does not need to follow language syntax rules.

PHP parser ignores all the comments.

There are two ways of commenting

  • Single-Line Commenting - // your comment or # your comment
  • Multi-Line Commenting - /* your comment */

PHP Comments Example


// this is a single-line comment

# this is a single-line comment too

	This is a multi-line comment
	This line is a comment

// to remove a part of code
echo 5 /* + 2 */  + 5;
