If a statement is split up into multiple lines as shown below, how can we comment?

ijay784: there is a link to manuals at the top of the page. Click on it, find the VSAM Services for DFSMS manual, open it, and READ THE FREAKING MANUAL until your question is answered. If this takes 5 minutes, great. If it takes 3 weeks, also great. But your question is quite simply answered in the manual -- totally and completely -- and we are not a manual reading service for you.

I guess that the TS started reading the "About this document" chapter, and then lost it totally.
