9.41.2 Special Characters

# is the line comment character.

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

The ; character can be used instead of a newline to separate statements.
