   If the first line of a block-style .if request must be terminated
with a backslash, how does one insert an inline comment?  The actual
text in my document is:

.ie \n[FormatterPass]=1 \{\"            On the first pass, open a file to store
.  open SecondPassFile /tmp/tempx\"       forward references and
.  ds useModelSectionNumber 0\"           initialize string registers.
.el .if \n[FormatterPass]=2 \{\"        On the second pass, source the file
.  so /tmp/tempx\"                        which defines the forward references
.  sy rm -f /tmp/tempx\"                  and then remove it.

Does the comment-to-end-of-line (\") actually introduce a blank line?

address@hidden                       ________------+------________
                                                       / \
