sqlite nested comment, /* -- */ (sqlitebrowser..)


Hya

to whom it may concern

Software used
sqlitebrowser, sqlite

Problem
After commenting out several lines for debug, things went wrong. (completely zero output)

Documentation reads
This page reads
Quote:
Comments do not nest.
Why I am posting here
Nested comment like
Code:
/*--having count(*) > 1
--order by 1
*/
works. But
Code:
/*--having count(*) > 1
--order by 1*/
chokes.

My understanding was that "nested comment" meant
Code:
/* ... /* ... */ ... */
While
Code:
-- ... -- ...
works!

Closing remark
Have a happy penguin.

Hi kaz2100
I think the reason that the second code you setout did not work is because you never had a space
just before the '*/' .
Code:
/*--having count(*) > 1
--order by 1*/
Try it by putting a space before the */ such as
Code:
/*--having count(*) > 1
--order by 1 */
Although not necessary it probably would be good style to leave a space also after the '/*' such as
Code:
/*  --having count(*) > 1
--order by 1*  /
Cheers...

Hya

Thanks for your comment. Apology for delay.

I have not investigated in detail, though I will update as soon as I find something new.

cheers
