 Place a single-line comment in a program file

     NOTE [<commentText>]


     <commentText> is a string of characters placed after the comment


     NOTE is command synonym for the single-line comment indicator (*).  All
     characters after NOTE are ignored until the CA-Clipper compiler
     encounters an end of line (carriage return/line feed).  This means a
     single-line comment cannot be continued with the semicolon (;) onto a
     new line.

     If you need a multi-line or inline comment, begin the comment block with
     a slash-asterisk (/*) symbol and end the comment block with an
     asterisk-slash (*/) symbol.  If you need to comment out a block of code,
     use the conditional compilation directives #ifdef...#endif instead of
     multiline comments.  This is important since nested comments are

     NOTE is a compatibility command and therefore not recommended.  It is
     superseded by the C-style comment symbols slash-asterisk (/*) and
     asterisk-slash (*/), as well as the double-slash (//).  It is also
     superseded by the dBASE-style comment symbols, asterisk (*) and the
     double-ampersand (&&).

     For a complete discussion on comment indicators, refer to the "Basic
     Concepts" chapter in the Programming and Utilities Guide.

        * This is a comment
        && This is a comment
