Hello all, (I am working in PSS/E 33 on Windows 7)

Pretty simple question here. I am new to PSS/E, and I could not seem to find this info anywhere in the manuals or online: Is there a uniform method for adding comments to PSS/E input files (such as .raw or .dyr) such that the compiler will ignore them? (ie python = #Comment here matlab = //comment here .....) If it matters, I am not creating these files in the GUI. I am directly coding them in a text editor.

I did find the TEXT api command, but the documentation states that this is only for "response files," "progress output," and "recording files." From my understanding these files are only output files of PSS/E.

Thanks so much for any insight.

@yfwing -- Not sure why I cannot comment on your answer, but thanks. I noticed that convention in other files, but was not sure if it applied to all file extensions. I was able to load my .dyr file after doing that. I would upvote your answer, but I do not have the "Karma" yet...

The comment starts with '/'. You can put '/' anywhere you would like to add comments. The contents between '/' and end-of-line (EOL) will be ignored.
