Rem Statement

See Also Example Specifics

Used to include explanatory remarks in a program.



You can also use the following syntax:


The optional commentargument is the text of any comment you want to include. A space is required between the Remkeyword and comment.


If you use line numbers or line labels, you can branch from a GoTo or GoSubstatement to a line containing a Rem statement. Execution continues with the first executable statement following the Rem statement. If the Rem keyword follows other statements on a line, it must be separated from the statements by a colon (:).

You can use an apostrophe (') instead of the Rem keyword. When you use an apostrophe, the colon is not required after other statements.
