Pragma



programming
(pragmatic information) A standardised form of comment which has meaning to the compiler or some other program. It may use a special syntax or a specific form within the normal comment syntax. A pragma usually conveys non-essential information, often intended to help the compiler to optimise the program or to generate formatted documentation.
