Subject: Re: Commenting out blocks of code in FF

There is a really easy way to do it in SEU:


 You can use the overlay function to overlay a line with another line.
This is useful when one line contains a pattern of characters that you
want to merge with characters on other lines. You use the overlay
command in conjunction with the copy command.

In the following example, the block form of the overlay command (OO)
is used. This will cause the contents of line 1 to overlay the
contents of lines 2 through 6. Please note that overlay characters are
uppercase letter O, not the numeric digit 0 (zero). Also, in my
example below, I entered a blank after the C and OO commands to make
them more readable.

        *************** Beginning of data **************************
C 01.00 /*                                           */
OO 2.00        111111111111111
0003.00        222222222222222
0004.00        333333333333333
0005.00        444444444444444
OO 6.00        555555555555555
        ****************** End of data *****************************

The result below shows that lines 2 through 5 have been overlaid by
the contents of line 1.

        *************** Beginning of data **************************
0001.00 /*                                           */
0002.00 /*     111111111111111                       */
0003.00 /*     222222222222222                       */
0004.00 /*     333333333333333                       */
0005.00 /*     444444444444444                       */
0006.00 /*     555555555555555                       */
        ****************** End of data *****************************
