A statement in the list input file can be continued onto the following line if the last character of the line is "\". Multiple continuation lines may be used so long as the total combined line length is less than 1024 characters. Splitting long lines in this manner can make the list input file more readable.
Continuation characters should not be used on the first three lines of the list input file. Trailing comments should not be placed after a line continuation character, nor should should a full comment line be placed after a line with a continuation character. Also, the last character of a trailing comment must not be "\".
