Comments cannot be the first line of a file, if I recall correctly. The way that I put my name and email at the top is after a using statement for the database.

Subject: Re: comment out hive script file
Thanks, Edward, and sorry for late reply.
I want to add comment in the file using with "hive -f".
$ cat sample_select.hql
-- some commentSELECT something FROM sample_table;
$ hive -f sample_select.hql
Sample above does not work. Either "#" or "/* */" doesnot work.
So, is there no way to add comment in the file?

There is a subtle nuance, comments can only appear before QL statements not set or add commands.

Either "--" or "/* */" does not seem to work.
