Commenting Scripts

When you look at a script someone else createdor you created a long time ago it isn't always obvious what it's trying to do. To help keep things clear, add comments to your script. You add each comment via a Comment script step. This step has just one option: the text of the comment itself. The comment step is special for two reasons. First, it doesn't do anything except say whatever you tell it to say. Second, it shows in bold when you view your script in the Edit Script window. You can see a commented script in Figure 15-1.
