Define Comments in PHP

 In PHP, comments are used to add explanatory notes and reminders to code without affecting its functionality. There are two types of comments in PHP:

  1. Single-line comments: Single-line comments start with two forward slashes (//) and extend to the end of the line. They are used for short comments that fit on a single line.


// This is a single-line comment
  1. Multi-line comments: Multi-line comments start with /* and end with */. They are used for longer comments that span multiple lines.


/* This is a multi-line comment that can span across multiple lines */

Comments are ignored by the PHP interpreter and are not executed as part of the code. They are only meant for human readers to understand the code better. It is a good practice to add comments to your code to make it more readable and maintainable.
