9.29.2.2 Special Characters

A semicolon (‘ ; ’) appearing anywhere on a line starts a comment that extends to the end of that line.

If a ‘ # ’ appears as the first character of a line then the whole line is treated as a comment, but it can also be a logical line number directive (see Comments ) or a preprocessor control command (see Preprocessing ).

Multiple statements can appear on the same line provided that they are separated by the ‘ { ’ character.

The character ‘ $ ’ in jump instructions indicates current location and implemented only for TI syntax compatibility.
