Use a # at starting of line which is to commented with in the script.

e.g.

#!/bin/bash
# mycommand
command1

in this script the command line mycommand will not get executed...

and to uncommant remove # from there.

If you want to comment the "TASK gsnmpproxy" you can something like:

Code:
awk '/TASK gsnmpproxy/{f=1} f{$0="#"$0} /\}/&&f{f=0} 1' file

${X} -l ${Y} ${Z} "trap '' INT;. ~/.profile >/dev/null 2>/dev/null; awk '/TASK gsnmpproxy/{f=1} f{$0="#"$0} /\}/&&f{f=0} 1' filename"
