Hi there,

I have a question regarding the use of comments in Stata programs.

The two possibilities to comment out a line of code are to put a "*"
or "//" in the beginning of a line.

The manual (e.g. online here: says:

" * indicates that the line is to be ignored."
"// indicates that the rest of the line is to be ignored."

Both definitions are using the concept of a "line". I would like to
double-check, what is really meant by "line" in this context?

Thank you, Sergiy Radyakin
