9.50.2.1 Special Characters

Line comments are introduced either by the ‘ ! ’ character or by the ‘ ; ’ character appearing anywhere on a line.

A hash character (‘ # ’) as the first character on a line also marks the start of a line comment, but in this case it could also be a logical line number directive (see Comments ) or a preprocessor control command (see Preprocessing ).

The Visium assembler does not currently support a line separator character.
