Used to include explanatory remarks in a program.
Synopsis
Rem comment
or

' comment
Arguments
None.
The comment argument is the text of any comment you want to include. After the Rem keyword, a space is required before comment.
Description
As shown in the syntax section, you can use an apostrophe (') instead of the Rem keyword. If the Rem keyword follows other statements on a line, it must be separated from the statements by a colon. However, when you use an apostrophe, the colon is not required after other statements.
Examples
The following example illustrates the use of the Rem statement:
Dim MyStr1, MyStr2
MyStr1 = "Hello" : Rem Comment after a statement separated by a colon.
MyStr2 = "Goodbye"     ' This is also a comment; no colon is needed.
Rem Comment on a line with no code; no colon is needed.
