REM
Abbreviation:

TYPE: Statement
FORMAT: REM [<remark>]

Action:The REM statement makes your programs more easily understood when LISTed. It's a reminder to yourself to tell you what you had in mind when you were writing each section of the program. For instance, you might want to remember what a variable is used for, or some other useful information. The REMark can be any text, word, or character including the colon (:) or BASIC keywords.

The REM statement and anything following it on the same line-number are ignored by BASIC, but REMarks are printed exactly as entered when the program is listed. A REM statement can be referred to by a GOTO or GOSUB statement, and the execution of the program will continue with the next higher program line having executable statements.

EXAMPLES of REM Statement:

10 REM CALCULATE AVERAGE VELOCITY
20 FOR X= 1 TO 20 :REM LOOP FOR TWENTY VALUES
30 SUM=SUM + VEL(X): NEXT
40 AVG=SUM/20
