Comment in Python is a piece of code that is not interpreted by Python. Comments in Python or in any other programming language are used to give some additional information about a certain block of code. The main purpose of comments is to let others understand what a certain block of code does. So that they can modify it in the future if required.
Creating a Python Comment
In Python, a comment starts with a # symbol. Python does not interpret a line that starts with the # symbol. Therefore comments are not part of any output.
# Hi, I am a comment. print('Hello, I am not a comment')
Hello, I am not a comment
An inline comment in Python
A comment can also be placed in the same line as the executable code. The Python interpreter will skip the execution of the code that is placed after the # symbol. See the below example:
print('Hello, Print me!!') # This is an inline comment
Hello, Print me!!
Creating multi line comments
Python does not provide us a separate syntax for creating multi-line comments as other programming languages do. However, we can use the # symbol to create multi-line comments. See the below example:
# Hello, # I am a # multi-line comment. print('I am not a comment')
I am not a comment
