Coments in a Prime Program
Sorry if this has been discussed, but I am having a problem. I am having a problem with EVERY program I download or write, when I come to a comment line my listing stops executing. As an example, I'd like to quote just a portion from Egan Ford's Breakout Program. I hope you don't mind, Egan...

// breakout hp prime v 1.0
// Egan Ford <>
// Inspired by Tugdual's Pong alpha and Atari 2600 Breakout


local j, t, m;
local paddle_x, paddle_y, paddle_w, paddle_h, paddle_m; // paddle
local score_y, brick_h, brick_n; // bricks
local brick_colors, brixel_x, brixel_y, brick_w;
local x, y, vx, vy, ball_m, ball_w, ball_n, rel_x; // ball

The problem is, the emulator will not read anything until I delete the 1st six lines beginning //. When I delete these lines, my calculator read down until the line that ends // paddle. This line cannot be read until I erase the //paddle, then it works.

I have to go through the entire line erasing all comment, then the calculator and software works perfectly. What am I doing wrong?

I'm a math teacher. Of course I have problems.
