Metacommands (such as $INCLUDE and $IGNORE) are treated as comments in the interpreter environment QuickBASIC for the Macintosh. The following information is taken from Page 375 of the "Microsoft QuickBASIC for Apple Macintosh Systems: BASIC Language Reference":
QuickBASIC only recognizes metacommands when they are in a comment statement (line beginning with REM or an apostrophe). This means you can use metacommands when developing programs in the QuickBASIC environment because the environment ignores them as comments, but the compiler acts on them.
