Commenting in ScriptUO
« on: December 23, 2009, 11:52:41 AM »

I've always found it strange that in EUO, commented lines were finite, as in, the whole line is therefore unused. In many, if not all other programming languages, there is a 'closing' comment feature. Such as
Code: [Select]
used code <!-- in HTML, unused code --> used code
Code: [Select]
used code /* in CSS, unused code */ used code
Heck, even these boards!

So I wonder, is something like this possible someday in SUO?

Probably not.  Doing so would make scripts written for SUO become incompatible with EUO.  That's always been an important concept.

I looked at it a few times, it's interesting that UOCartographer also is written in LUA.

With .NET it all compiles down to IL.  LUA is just another language otherwise, relatively basic but functional.  It's just over the head of most basic script users.
