comment out(redirected from Commenting out)
Also found in: Encyclopedia.
To change some amount of computer programming code into a comment, thus disabling it within the program without deleting it altogether. A noun or pronoun can be used between "comment" and "out." I really wish you would stop commenting out so much of your code, because you're leaving behind a cluttered mess. Why don't we just comment it out for now, so we can reimplement it later if we want?
