What is "# --" ?

P: n/a
Newbie question here.

What does "# --" mean?

I downloaded a PHP example of uploading a file and it contains several
of these. Does it indicate a comment? I can't find an explanation
anywhere (including two books I have on PHP).

Thanks.

``#'' is a comment marker, indicating a comment through the end of
line.

It's just like ``//''. It's used in many Unix languages.
