Comments in Easytrieve (start with *)

Comment lines need to start with an asterisk ( * ). There is no multi line comments in Easytrieve. For every comment line, you need to have * as the first non-blank character.

example:

 LIST ON
 JOB INPUT NULL
* this a comment
 * this is another comment line
 DISPLAY 'THIS IS NOT A COMMENT'
 STOP
*
