I beg to differ. A few examples, randomly taken from GNU manuals:
> In the awk language, a comment starts with the number sign character
> (‘#’) and continues to the end of the line. The ‘#’ does not have to
> be the first character on the line.
> a word beginning with ‘#’ causes that word and all remaining
> characters on that line to be ignored.
> In the Octave language, a comment starts with either the sharp sign
> character, ‘#’, or the percent symbol ‘%’ and continues to the end of
> the line. Any text following the sharp sign or percent symbol is
> ignored by the Octave interpreter and not executed. The following
> example shows whole line and partial line comments.
> disp ("Blast Off!"); # Rocket leaves pad
> Comments in m4 are normally delimited by the characters ‘#’ and
> `quoted text' # `commented text'
> According to Posix, Make comments start with # and continue until an
> unescaped newline is reached.
> $ make # GNU make
