Comment block in ModelSim?

Hi  

 

Is there a way to comment out a section in a .do file in modelsim? I can comment out a line using "#" but was wondering what is the syntax for commenting out a section (/*........ */ in C) 

 

Thanks

What HDL? Verilog supports blocks using /* */, or line by line using //. VHDL uses -- for each line. Modelsim may let you select a bunch of text and insert --'s, but it's been awhile since I've used it.

This is for a .do file (not a vhdl or verilog file)

Use a condition that is always false  

 

if {0} { # code that never gets executed }

Thanks Dave for your reply however its not quite what I wanted. I wanted to put in several lines of comments for instruction to me for when I open it again months later and have forgotten what I was doing :confused: . Its just a pain to manually add "#" to each line!

its not really that much of a bother is it? 

Just write the words, then use a good text editor with column edit to add in all the#

Yeah I guess. I just thought I was missing something and there was an easy way to do it. I guess not
