You CAN NOT use /* and */ for begin/end comment in R.
 
But if you choose Options -> Main -> Application in Tinn-R you can specify whether you want a comment to start with # or ## or ### or ...

Still doesn't work. I did 
Format --> Block --> Comment  and chose /* for begin comment,
*/ for end comment
but R doesn't recognize the signs as such. Maybe I should work on the configuration of TINN R?

Thanks,

Mihai

A hash (#) anywhere on a line will comment out the rest of the line. Try!

I don't think there is anything in R that will indicate the beginning and end of a "comment section" (like /* .... */ would in SAS). However most editors (and certainly emacs and Tinn-R) will allow you to comment out several lines.

Hi everybody,

I use for the moment "#" at the begining of each line for comments.

Is there any possibility to comment more than one line, like something which shows the beggingng and the end of the comment? Or is there a possibility to comment only a part of a line?

Thanks,

Mihai
