Cross-block comments

#COMMENT BEGIN      Start of comment block Disabled area.

                                       All lines are ignored by the NC kernel without evaluation.

#COMMENT END          End of comment block

Both commands must be programmed in a separate NC line, i.e. further NC commands in the same block are not permissible. An exception is a line-by-line comment that must be bracketed "(" and ")".

Comment blocks can be defined inside or outside an NC program. However, they are restricted to the current file since calls from and returns from global subroutines included in the comments are not evaluated.

Application-specific nesting of comments can be enabled.
