Comments in PHP

<?php

    /*
           This code by Chris Coyier
    */

    $i = 0;    // counter to be used later;

?>

Comments in PHP can be between /* */ markings (useful for multiple line comments) or after // markings (for single lines only).

    Have you tried the other type of comments? you use the # sign and they work like // comments.

    Can you help me with a small text based counter script ? It says something like permission error.

    I think its best to avoid using the multiline version for short blocks if you can.
    The reason is that they don’t nest well. So if you use, “/asterisk A comment asterisk/”
    in a
    function and latter comment out the function with “/asterisk asterisk/”. You wont get what you want.
    For example:

    /*
    function test()
    {
    /*This is a comment */

      invade_mars();
    

    }

    */

    We can also use hashes (#) for comment

    Eg:

    <?php
    #Your comment
    ?>

    I have a question, how about these lines
    <!-- Start --> , <!-- End -->
    can I use this kind on annotation in php files or this actually is considered a php command line? Thanks,
