SRFI 62: S-expression comments

keywords: Reader Syntax


This SRFI proposes a simple extension to Scheme's lexical syntax that allows individual S-expressions to be made into comments, ignored by the reader. This contrasts with the standard Lisp semicolon comments, which make the reader ignore the remainder of the line, and the slightly less common block comments, as SRFI 30 defines: both of these mechanisms comment out slices of text, not S-expressions.
