How to Add Multiline Comments in Python?

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 (''' or """), 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.


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.
