Digest #222 2023-05-03
I understand the standard requires a different behavior for multi-line comments, depending on whether the source is read from a text file or not. Multi-line comments shall work when read from a text file, but fail when pasted into an interpreter or read from a block.
For practical reasons, I think it would be preferable if the behavior was same between input sources.
It makes me wonder...
- do you agree?
- what would be your preferred behavior?
- would it be realistic to change the standard to allow multi-line comments for all input sources?
- would it be realistic to change the standard to disallow multi-line comments for all input sources?
