Instruct the compiler that comment will follow.
REM or '
You can comment your program for clarity.
You can use REM or ' followed by your comment.
All statements after REM or ' are treated as comment so you cannot
use statements after a REM statement.
It is also possible to use block comments:
'( start block comment
print "This will not be compiled
') end block comment
Note that the starting ' sign will ensure compatibility with QB
Each block must be closed with a ')
REM TEST.BAS version 1.00
