I´ve written about the possibilities of “functional” ABAP Comments here “Functional comments”: What commented ABAP-Code can do.
Now i figured out one more possible use:
Why not use it for prototyping of not yet existing usages, for example:
* If Project X is coming this should be implemented:
* new_method( im_test = ‘ABC’ ).
* raise event whatever.
If the implementing developer comes to this code if Project X starts, he can easyly doubleclick e. g. on the eventname and create and implement it. After that he can decomment the call and that´s it.
Somone more ideas what to die with “Functional comments?”
