For AWS CLI configuration and credentials files how do you comment out lines in these files - I checked the documentation here http://docs.aws.amazon.com/cli/latest/userguide/cli-chap-getting-started.html#cli-config-files but found nothing.

e.g.

~/.aws/credentials

[default]

aws_access_key_id = XXXXXXXXX

aws_secret_access_key = YYYYYYYY

[qa]

aws_access_key_id = AAAAAAAAA

aws_secret_access_key = BBBBBB

~/.aws/config

[default]

region = us-east-1

[profile qa]

region = us-west-2

[profile staging]

region = us-east-2

Just use # character to make comments. For example:

[default]

aws_access_key_id = XXXXXXXXX

aws_secret_access_key = YYYYYYYY

#[qa]

#aws_access_key_id = AAAAAAAAA

#aws_secret_access_key = BBBBBB
