8.20.3.1 Special Characters

The characters `*' and `#' are line comment characters; each start a comment at the beginning of a line, but only at the beginning of a line. A `#' prefixes a hexadecimal number if found elsewhere on a line.

Two other characters, `%' and `!', each start a comment anywhere on the line. Thus you can't use the `modulus' and `not' operators in expressions normally associated with these two characters.

A `;' is a line separator, treated as a new-line, so separate instructions can be specified on a single line.
