Comments in PHP

Comments in PHP

As with most programming languages (or maybe all programming languages), PHP supports comments.

PHP follows the traditional C style comments but it also adds a couple of non-C style ones too. There are a total of three different ways a comment can be opened in PHP:

  • #
  • //
  • /* */
PHP
<?php
	# Put our code here
	// Put our code here

	/*
	* This comment is
	* multiline
	*/
?>
					

The # and // comments are interchangeable whereas the /* and */ combination is the multiline comment.
