Up: MIPS Syntax   [Contents][Index] Special Characters

The presence of a # on a line indicates the start of a comment that extends to the end of the current line.

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

The ; character can be used to separate statements on the same line.
