Python does not have a specific syntax for multiline comments like most other programming languages do. However, there is a common workaround to achieve a similar effect, which is to use triple quotes (
"""), for example, like so:
""" This is a multiline comment. You can write as many lines as you want here. This will not be executed or cause any syntax errors. """ print('foo')
A multiline string enclosed in triple quotes is ignored by Python (unless it's assigned to a variable or used in a specific way). Therefore, you can use it to add multiline comments, even though its typically used for creating docstrings.
It's important to note that using single-line comments (starting with
#) is generally recommended for adding comments to your code because docstrings are specifically intended for documenting functions, classes, and modules.
