Multi-line comments(comments block) are used for description of large text of code or comment out chunks of code at the time of debugging application.
Does Python Support Multi-line Comments(like c/c++…)?
Actually in many online tutorial and webstie you will find that multiline_comments are avilable in python(“”” or ”’). but let’s first look at what python creator, “Guido van Rossum” said about fake block commenting style :
- if writing a text in a single line then use double quotes or single quotes in python.
- if writing a poem or songs or multi-line text then to use triple quotes(“”” or ”’).
both two points do not give any error because text within single quotes or double quotes or tripple quotes can be considered as text-constant
The above technique does not create true comments. It simply inserts Text constant that does not change anything or say that this is a regular single line string somewhere in your code. Always keep in mind to indent the first ( “”” or ”’ ) match correctly, otherwise a SyntaxError is generated.
How we comment out chunks of code easily?
Simply select those lines(it means when to copy the text then first select those lines) and then press (cntrl+#) otherwise consecutive # in every lines is the only way.
