Fixed-Format Lines

In fixed source form, a source line has columns divided into fields for statement labels, continuation indicators, statement text, and sequence numbers. Each column represents a single character.

The column positions for each field follow:

Field  Column 
Statement label  1 through 5 
Continuation indicator 
Statement  7 through 72 (or 132 with a compiler option) 
Sequence number  73 through 80 

By default, a sequence number or other identifying information can appear in columns 73 through 80 of any fixed-format line in a Compaq Fortran program. The compiler ignores the characters in this field.

If you extend the statement field to position 132, the sequence number field does not exist.
