Converting VBScript's Rem Statement
Definition: Includes explanatory remarks in a program.
To add a comment to a Windows PowerShell script (or a Windows PowerShell command, for that matter) simply preface that comment with the pound sign (#); anything following the pound sign will be treated as a comment and ignored by the script processor. For example, this command calls the Get-Date Cmdlet and then tacks on a comment explaining what the Cmdlet does:
get-date # This Cmdlet retrieves the current date and time
When you execute this command you’ll simply get back the current date and time; the comment will be ignored. That’s also true with this command:
get-date # get-help
The Get-Date Cmdlet will be executed; the Get-Help Cmdlet will not. That’s because, in this example, Get-Help is a comment, not a command.
