One of the lines in my script contains a PHP closing tag inside a string. Under normal operation this does not cause a problem, but I need to comment out the line.
I have tried to comment out this line with
# but none of them work, the parser considers closing tag to be an actual closing tag.
Here is the line in question:
$string = preg_replace('#<br\s*/?>(?:\s*<br\s*/?>)+#i', '<br />', $string); // ^^ ^^
What can I do to comment out the above line?
