Example text

This is not one of those deals where you must first pay the price of long, hard work. It's more like this: Once you get the basic idea, you'll be able to apply the same techniques to many concepts.

It's best to deliberately use semicolons to end each line, however. One of the best character sequences to learn is the double forward slash (//), which creates a comment. Comments are ignored by Flash, so you can write anything you want. You can use comments as notes to yourself (or anyone else who might be viewing your code). The phrase "commenting your code" means that you include all the information necessary to make sense of your code through comments.

Comments Comments are lines of code that are ignored by Flash. Text preceded by // is ignored. Actually, if you start a block of text with /*, all lines are ignored until */ is reached. The idea is that you can write notes to yourself (or anyone reading your code) that explain in normal English what's going on in the code. Actually, you'll often find that comments help you discover bugs. You might see a comment that says //loop through all the answers and then notice that the code doesn't really do that!
