Explanation:
In some computer languages, eg DOS, C, Assembler, etc, a line of code can be temporarily prevented from running by turning it into a comment. This is done by (typically) placing a semicolon or the word "COM" or "REM" at the beginning of the line. The parser then assumes that the rest of the line, including the unwanted operator, is a comment, and skips over it.

Explanation:
German is direct translation of the English.

When programming, you insert some special characters (e.g., "***") before and after a section of the program you want ignored. Useful when you're debugging a program you're writing.

uncomment


Explanation:
I translated it from english to french a couple of weeks ago

In a scripting, it can be SQL as well as Perl, javscript, etc...
when the script is downloaded, some lines are put between comment signs (it can be !-- --!, # #, or any other according to the scripting language).
The user generally has to adapt the script to his personal use (i.e change some elements in the script), and uncomment some others, which had been put between comment tags for manipulation purposes, so as to make them active.

hope this helps
