9.46.2.1 Special Characters

The semicolon `;' is the line comment character;

If a `#' appears as the first character of a line then the whole line is treated as a comment, but in this case the line could also be a logical line number directive (see Comments) or a preprocessor control command (see Preprocessing).

The Z80 assembler does not support a line separator character.

The dollar sign `$' can be used as a prefix for hexadecimal numbers and as a symbol denoting the current location counter.

A backslash `\' is an ordinary character for the Z80 assembler.

The single quote `'' must be followed by a closing quote. If there is one character in between, it is a character constant, otherwise it is a string constant.
