I tried to use comments in SC3. Using the normal format:
//Comment
As shown below is a piece of my math program. In SC3 the comments are showing as this light pink color, So I assume it understands that it is a comment.

Code:
```//Adding the Factor to table of factors If [C](1,2)=0:Then//Form: X=+A,X-A [C](2,2)->[D]([D](1,1),1) ~1*[C](2,1)->[D]([D](1,1),2) [D](1,1)+1->[D](1,1) Else If [C](1,3)=0:Then//Form: X=-A,X+A ~1*[C](2,1)->[C](2,1) [C](2,2)->[D]([D](1,1),1) [C](2,1)->[D]([D](1,1),2) [D](1,1)+1->[D](1,1) Else//Didn't find a factor```

When I transfer the code over to jsTIfied it has put the comments into the code also, therefore the program runs into a syntax error every time. The same goes for if I export the code.

Since Ti-BASIC doesnt actually support comments, I'm pretty sure that they shouldnt be in the compiled code.
For the comments that are on the same line as a TI-BASIC statement, you need to have at least one piece of whitespace, like a space or a tab, between the code and the comment. For example, on the second line, you could have a few tabs between Then and // to make the comment get removed during exporting. Even a single space between Then and // would do the trick.
Oh ok, Thanks.

Why?

Why?

Because the tokenizer needs a space in order to keep things easier to implement, if you want to be picky the comment start is actually " //" and not just "//" it makes sense and makes it easier to have // inline in a string.
