Comments

Comments, unlike the code itself, don't tell Python what to do. They're more like notes to yourself, and to other programmers who may want to modify or edit your code l ater, that sey, "This is why I wrote it this way." In Python, a comment starts with the pound (# ) characte r, which telts the interpreter to ignore the text after it until the end of the line. Each line of a comment must start with thiis charade.

As the following example shows, you can put comments on their own line or you can add them after a statement.

#The following example demonstrates

#printing hello world to the console print ("hello world") #this prints hello world
