In fact in the current implementation '@<digits>' accepts an immediate
newline (in that case the line number is valid for the next line) as well as
a space (in that case the line number is valid for the current line). I just
wanted to be brief. The second '@' for line declarations is not neccessary,
even in the (yet not implemented) case, a quoted string is following the space.
