1''' 2Multi line comment 3with docstring method 4'''
The standard way to comment a line of code on python will be with the
1#print("I won't be seen") 2print("But I will!") 3 4#Output-> Bit I will!
As you may already be thinking, if by using the
#char we comment one line, we can spawn them to comment more lines? and the answer is yes! You can do just that.
1#print("I won't be seen") 2#print("If only I wouldn't have that numeral in front, I would be displayed") 3print("But I will! I'm still the best") 4#Output-> Bit I will! I'm still the best
Docstring is the way to go if you want to comment a block of code on Python, since we are missing the
1''' 2print("I won't be seen") 3print("If you use the docstring method, I wont be displayed!") 4''' 5print("But I will! I'm still the best") 6 7#Output-> Bit I will! I'm still the best
docstringindentation is still important!
If you thought that you could scape indentation because you're commenting, you're wrong. Indentantion is still pretty much needed to prevent errors.
1def sumItGood(num1, num2): 2""" 3This function returns 4the sum of 2 given numbers 5""" 6 return num1 + num2 7print(addNumbers(2, 3))
This example will throw
IndentationError: expected an indented block becase we're not following the indentantion rule.
If we apply the correct indentation to our code, then we'll receive the expected output of
5 and happily commented the code we wanted.
1def sumItGood(num1, num2): 2 """ 3 This function returns 4 the sum of 2 given numbers 5 """ 6 return num1 + num2 7print(addNumbers(2, 3)) 8#Output-> 5
IDE makes our life as developers much easier with keyboard shortcuts and there's one that helps us to comment multiple lines with a single command
Note: These commands will place a
# char on the beggining of all the lines selected to comment, will not insert a
