Snippets - comments and @

  1. I've just (re-)started using Wing snippets and I wondered whether it was possible to add a comment (not to be passed on) in the snippet file to provide extra information if a snippet was edited so time later.

  2. I don't understand the working of the '@' prefix. Is there an example snippet that uses it ?

There isn't a comment syntax for snippets. It looks like @ is used in the 'def' snippet for 'module' context for Python. I think it would only make sense if you set up a variable that is filled from an environment variable. Then it causes the value that is auto-entered to wrap, as you'ld want for a docstring. Some of the snippet syntax predates implementation of filling in the values inline, and @ was probably more relevant before that change, a very long time ago now!
