Language: Comments

A newer version is available; see the version menu above for details.

Puppet supports two types of comments:

Shell-Style Comments

Shell-style comments (also known as Ruby-style comments) begin with a hash symbol (#) and continue to the end of a line. They can start at the beginning of a line or partway through a line that began with code.

    # This is a comment
    file {'/etc/ntp.conf': # This is another comment
      ensure => file,
      owner  => root,
    }

C-Style Comments

C-style comments are delimited by slashes with inner asterisks. They can span multiple lines. This comment style is less frequently used than shell-style.

    /*
      this is a comment
    */
