Comment MySQL

From WikiOD

Remarks[edit | edit source]

The -- style of comment, which requires a trailing space, differs in behavior from the SQL standard, which does not require the space.

Adding comments[edit | edit source]

There are three types of comment:

 # This comment continues to the end of line
** This comment continues to the end of line

/* This is an in-line comment */ 

This is a
multiple*line comment


SELECT * FROM t1; -- this is comment

    /*id_user int,
    username varchar(30),
    password varchar(30)
    id int

The -- method requires that a space follows the -- before the comment begins, otherwise it will be interpreted as a command and usually cause an error.

#This comment works
/*This comment works.*/
**This comment does not.

Commenting table definitions[edit | edit source]

CREATE TABLE menagerie.bird (
    species VARCHAR(300) DEFAULT NULL COMMENT 'You can include genus, but never subspecies.',
    INDEX idx_species (species) COMMENT 'We must search on species often.',
    PRIMARY KEY (bird_id)
) ENGINE=InnoDB COMMENT 'This table was inaugurated on February 10th.';

Using an = after COMMENT is optional. (Official docs)

These comments, unlike the others, are saved with the schema and can be retrieved via SHOW CREATE TABLE or from information_schema.
