Inline Comments

Most of you know the two ways of adding comments to powershell code:

  

Get-Process # remainder of line is treated as comment

<#
block commenting all of the lines inbetween
the opening and closing tags
#>

  Two types of comments are available in PowerShell

Block comments can also be used to mark selected regions of a line as a comment, though.

Have a look at this line:

  

<# Some Inline Comment #> Get-Process

  Block comments can be used to place comments at the beginning of a code line – or in the middle of a statement

Unlike with "#", using block comments the comment can be limited to only a portion of the line. Anything following the block comment will still be treated as valid code.
