PHP Comments are used to describe any line of code or program, But it can also be used to hide your code.
Not only this, it will help other developers to understand your code easily. And it also helps you because sometimes you forget why you wrote this code.
Like other languages, PHP also supports single line comments and multiple line comments.
And yes comments are not executed. That means you can’t see comments in browsers.
Single Line Comments
In PHP, there are two ways to use single line comments.
- Using double forward slash (//)
- Using the hash sign (#)
<?php //This is a single line comment #This is another single line comment echo "You can't see comments in browsers"; ?>

/* and ends with
