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.
