Thanks for the explanation.  Seems to me this is very much a good-to-have.  The one-liner will probably break most style guide as the line of code would be too long (including the magnet link etc.)

A single line would look like this:

/* @license magnet:... / alert('one line'); / @license-end */

Perhaps this fixes the issue?


It will be included in the next release.

I don't quite understand this bit.

If you have a script like

/* @license magnet:?xt=urn:btih:5ac446d35272cc2e4e85e4325b146d0b7ca8f50c&dn=unlicense.txt Unlicense */


/* @license-end */

How do you condense it to a single line?

It is currently possible to use '//' at the beginning of a license comment in a script tag. it would be great if it were possible to use '/*' and '*/' so scripts can be condensed to live on a single line if need be.

this would help make it easier to share code that is copy and paste-able between sites using a single line of code.

thanks! : )
