Comments in Variable file?
« on: September 06, 2005, 05:28:18 PM »
Mouser,

Is it possible to add a comment line in the variable file?  For example - using a semicolon as the first character in the line?

; Comment line - ignored by "TheFormLetterMachine"

I am working on creating two configuration trees and I plan on submitting them and associated variable files to you for examples to use for newbies.

Awaiting your reply,
Ben

I found that any line that does not have an "=" sign is listed in the Value field.  Unfortunately, this takes up space in the Key/Variables window.  It would be helpful if a character could be defined so that the line would be ignored.
