Non-Executable Program Statements

A non-executable program statement helps organize security policy files. Because non-executable program statements have a special meaning to the Security Policy Scripting Language interpreter, they are not used for any other purpose. For instance, using a non-executable program statement as a variable name generates an error.

The non-executable program statement consists of the Comment statement.

Comment Statement

Comment statements document the inner workings of individual security policy files. Comment text is nonexecutable code that is ignored by the interpreter during execution.

Comment statements must begin with the # character and continue to the end of the current line. No end character is necessary. This type of comment statement may not span multiple lines.

# Comment text goes here.
