Add Comments in Bash Scripts
To make comments in bash scripts, use the
# (hash) symbol. Anything on the same line after the hash will not run when the script is executed.
Here is an example of a comment at the top of a bash script:
#!/bin/bash echo "Hello World!"
You can also add comments after code on a line to narrate it. Here is an example:
#!/bin/bash echo "Hello World!" # Say hello to the world.
