Language: Comments

This page is about an old version of Puppet. If you use the current version of Puppet or of Puppet Enterprise, see the current Puppet docs.

Puppet supports two types of comments:

Shell-Style Comments

Shell-style comments (also known as Ruby-style comments) begin with a hash symbol (#) and continue to the end of a line. They can start at the beginning of a line or partway through a line that began with code.

    # This is a comment
    file {'/etc/ntp.conf': # This is another comment
      ensure => file,
      owner  => root,

C-Style Comments

C-style comments are delimited by slashes with inner asterisks. They can span multiple lines. This comment style is less frequently used than shell-style.
