# Hide a paragraph [duplicate]

Commenting out large sections

I have in my document a paragraph that I want to keep in my tex source. But when generating the PDF, I don't want it to appear.

How can I hide a paragraph or a whole section ?

Perhaps have a look at some packages like `verbatim` (`comment` environment). –  ienissei Jul 3 '12 at 8:52
You can sandwich the paragraph or section with a conditional construct. –  stalking isn't tolerated Jul 3 '12 at 8:53

You can put a `%` at the beginning of every line, or if there are no fancy if-constructs already in the code it is sometimes simpler to put

``````\iffalse
``````

before the section and

`````` \fi
``````

after the section.

Or there are comment and other packages which give you `comment` environments if you would rather use an environment form.
