Language: Comments

Included in Puppet Enterprise 2017.1.

Puppet supports two kinds 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
*/
