FreeDOS help system (hhstndrd 1.0.8 en)[slashdot]

Command: ;

';' marks the config.sys line as a comment. ';' has the same effect as 'REM'. ';' is a CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS command.


; [comment] REM [comment]


comment any comment you want to add to remember why you did this or that; can also be a command, which shall not be executed (maybe for test purposes).


';' and 'REM' provide the ability to place comments within the configuration file. The text following the ';' or 'REM' until the end of the line is reached is ignored. This may also be used to temporarily disable loading a particular device or other option. ';' is a command internal to kernel.sys and needs no other file in order to work.


IN CONFIG.SYS / FDCONFIG.SYS: REM DOS=HIGH,UMB has the same effect! ;DOS=HIGH,UMB has the same effect!
