in thread 78/80 chars perl line still a meaningful rule

I would have split the long text-string into two more convenient strings, concatenated together, and put the "unless" on a separate line, with each subsequent line neatly-indented from the first. I would particularly want to be sure that the presence of the "unless" line was not missed. I might for that reason say "unless (condition) { ... confess ... }" to make this important point all the more obvious to the reader. Being "obvious" is essential.
