Includes explanatory remarks in a program.
The comment argument is the text of any comment you want to include. After the Rem keyword, a space is required before comment.
As shown in the syntax section, you can use an apostrophe (') instead of the Rem keyword. If the Rem keyword follows other statements on a line, it must be separated from the statements by a colon. However, when you use an apostrophe, the colon is not required after other statements.
The following example illustrates the use of the Rem statement.
Dim MyStr1, MyStr2 MyStr1 = "Hello"
: RemComment after a statement separated by a colon. MyStr2 = "Goodbye"
'This is also a comment; no colon is needed.
RemComment on a line with no code; no colon is needed.
