Comments, only comments
In these days I search mostly one thing, in the Prime: /* block comments */
I need them to test my program, I can't stand to prefix every lines with //
:-)

yes, in fact, very very long...
I would prefer this:
Code:

/*
here
my long lines
don't execute them
they are hidden
*/

so we could confront blocks of program quickly...

Code:

IF 0 THEN 
 here
 my long lines
 don't execute them
 they are hidden
END

The lines still have to be syntactically correct though, alas.

RE: Comments, only comments
Myself I prefer much comments to be nestable, so I can write
Code:
/* right now I don't want to do this
/* and I never do this */
OK 
*/
But most languages don't allow that and would execute the OK.

Until block comments are implemented you could try using subroutines:

Code:
 export maybeDo
A
B
C
End

// maybeDo
One // takes out A B and C.

If I remember correctly the equivalent syntax on the ti-83 only required the syntax to be correct in the If true case...it was not checked in the If false case. How about the Prime?
