Define a comment. Mainly used in SQF Syntax, as you're able to introduce comment lines with semicolons in a SQS script.
This command is evaluated during execution, and as such is infinitely slower than other SQF comment methods (//comment or /*comment*/; which do not exist at runtime). See SQF Syntax for additional documentation on comments.


comment commentMsg
commentMsg: String - the comment that you'd like to write here
Return Value:


Example 1:
script.sqs comment "This is a commented line"
Example 2:
function.sqf comment "This is a commented line";

Like ArmA, you can't use brackets to make a multi-lines comment. But, in a sqf file, you can make a comment as follow : comment " first line seconde line";

If a file is loaded with preprocessFile, execVM or spawn (but not loadFile), you may also define C-like comments using // ... and /*...*/.

comment can also be used to create comments inside trigger activation fields where // or /*...*/ don't work.
