Drawing battleships with PowerShell block and multi line comment literals

by Klaus Graefensteiner 1. December 2010 22:20

The literals used for PowerShell block and multi-line comments are difficult to remember. Googling for multi-line comment doesn’t return the right results and only after I remembered to search for block comments was I successful.

Now its time to take care of it once and for ever by making the literals searchable (this blog post) and unforgettable using the battleship mnemonic device.


Figure 1: PowerShell multi line comments are firing

The following code snippet shows multi-line aka block comments in action.

<# Battle Ship #>

block / multi-line

# One line comment

<# Battle Ship #>

That's it. No more guessing!
