Comments in INCAR

Hello.
I am wondering how I can make comments in the INCAR file, and more precisely to what extent?
I am aware that I can have

Code: Select all
ALGO=F #comment here


But, can I have headings and space by code out more?

Code: Select all
## Parallelization Tags
NPAR = 8 # comment here

## Functional Tags
GGA = RE # comment here


I tried some variations of this but i received errors about not being able to read ISTART and other tags.

Thank you!
Sam

Hello,
headings (as you have posted) are considered as comments in the INCAR.
