INterpretation of Compile time error message in GFortran.

I get this error message at compile time (just an example):

The first number (136) is obviously the line number in the source code file but what is the second number? It is not a column number it seems,

Thanks. -A.

I am pretty sure it is the position in the line where the error occurred. Remember, Fortran 90 and up are no longer fixed-format and limited to 78 character lines.

That's what I thought also but this is definitely not the case. I finally fixed the problem. The FORMAT statement had a mistake, I rewrote it and thus found the wrong syntax. The FORMAT statements in this program are very short and nowhere near 131 or so characters. Thanks, - A.
