I would like to know the difference between using a Number Sign(#) and a Semicolon(;). I know that a hash is a comment and is ignored but I don't know why a semicolon is used or what it means. I see them both used in my motion.conf file as shown below.
# Tuner device to be used for capturing using tuner as source (default /dev/tuner0) # This is ONLY used for FreeBSD. Leave it commented out for Linux ; tunerdevice /dev/tuner0 # The video input to be used (default: 8) # Should normally be set to 0 or 1 for video/TV cards, and 8 for USB cameras input 8
Are there any other characters that are used to make comments other than the
; that mean special thing?
