CHANGE OPTIONAL COMMENT DELIMITERS

Syntax:

[DO NOT] KEEP OPTIONAL COMMENT DELIMITERS [DO NOT] KEEP D-LINES CHANGE OPTIONAL COMMENT DELIMITERS TO STANDARD COMMENTS CHANGE D-LINES TO STANDARD COMMENTS

Function:

The optional comment delimiters "D" (many compilers) and "X" and "Y" (Gould-SEL Concept series) introduce lines which may be compiled as code or ignored as comments according to compiler switches.

These commands instruct fpt to change the comment delimiters to standard comments so that the code may be compiled on systems which do not support this (non-standard) mechanism, or to leave them in place.
