in reply to How to split a string into two lines, intelligently

Assuming the first word doesn't consist of more than 50 characters (in which case, no solution is possible), a simple
s/\s/\n/;
will do. The first line will not be more than 50 characters, and the remainder will be in te second line.

It's not the solution that makes the longest first string possible with the given constraints, but then, you weren't asking for it.
