Rem statement (LotusScript® Language)

Indicates a one-line comment in a script.


Rem text



A one-line comment that LotusScript® ignores.


The Rem statement indicates a comment or "remark" in the script.

The Rem statement need not be the first statement on a line, but it is the last: the LotusScript® compiler ignores all text from the Rem keyword to the end of the current line. A line continuation character (an underscore) does not continue a Rem statement.

The apostophe ( ' ) has the same effect as the Rem keyword and can appear anywhere on a line without needing a colon ( : ) to separate the statements. As with Rem, LotusScript® ignores everything after the apostrophe.
