Hi All

Is there who knows to define multi line comment? ( in Java we can define
/* and */ )

Best Regards

Hello Thorsten L

Yes,I want to know how to define a multiline comment in rails,
In Java we can define it like this
Comment line 1
Comment line 2
Comment line 3
 Anything between /* and */ will be commented

So is there anyway that I can do this in rails

Hi Kushan

Thorsten did answer your question.  I've changed it to look similar to
your request.

Comment line 1
Comment line 2
Comment line 3

Hmm, I wonder if Thorsten's reply looked too much like English and got
ignored? :)

just keep in mind that kind of comments are reserved for ruby doc, so
best practices would tell not to use them unless for that purpose..
which leaves us without a general purpose multi line comment in ruby
