- Comment (computing)
computing, a comment is informationin a filethat is primarily intended as an annotation. The structure, scope and processing applied to this information depends on the syntaxand conventions used to describe the information contained in the file.
A common occurrence are the comments that appear in the
source codeof a program. In this case the syntaxof the programming languagespecifies the form that comments can take. Such comments could be said to be computer programming comments.
Another common usage are the comments that appear in an initialization or configuration file.
Word processorsoften support an option that enables writers of documents to effectively write "notes" to themselves about the material they are writing. These "notes" are not visible to a reader of the document unless explicitly asked for.
