Home of the ABS programming language: the joy of shell scripting.


In accordance with ABS’ minimalist style, there is only one way to create comments in order to document your code, by using the # character:

# This text represents a comment
x = 1

In ABS, when you start a comment it will run until the end of the line, meaning there’s no way to close comment blocks:

# This will not work # x = 1
ERROR: identifier not found: x

Though you can comment after a statement:

x = 1 # Now, this is a cool assignment!


That’s about it for this section!

You can now head over to read about data types available in ABS, starting from the string.
