Sigh.  You can get copies of the final committee drafts of
the Fortran 95, 2003, and 2008 standards.  There you will 
learn that Fortran since Fortran 90 allows two source forms:
fixed-form and free-form source code.  When parsing the
the above nonsense you wrote, one form would yield one (invalid)
token, and in the other form it would yield 11 tokens.
