Parent Previous Next

The following characters placed at the start of a template cell indicate to Gen IT how to treat the line. These characters are defined in the Project Settings.

Ignore-Character (Default is '!') – Specifies a character that can be used as a prefix to any Gen IT added comments. e.g. Cisco uses a ‘!‘ character.

Exclude-Character (Default is '^') – Any cell starting with this character indicates to Gen IT to add this line as-is to the generated output. No variable replacement is done.
