If I define a macro like this:

!define mymacro something  ' My comment

The comment is included in the macro, this means that this code:

!define mymacro something  ' My comment


Results in "something  ' My comment"

We have slightly change the use of simple quote.

Now it can only be used if the whole line is a comment.

But you can use /'xxxx'/ syntax which works either at the begin or at the end of the line.

Sorry about those changes!
