( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Interesting question. I pulled up some code and run it through (don't shoot me)

  awk '{print length($0)}' * | sort | uniq -c | sort -nk2

... which produced the following output:

504 1 112 2 12 3

(504 blank lines, 112 lines with a single char (probable a closing brace) and so on). I turned that into a scatter plot and I see that I have a fair spread of line lengths all the way out to about 75. From there the number of lines with longer lengths drops off a cliff, but that there is a clearly visible tail of line lengths all the way out to 120 or so.

Which does tend to correspond to the way I code. I like breaking things up, such as named parameters on separate lines, but as I'm either in an xterm or a Putty session, I just make the window as big as it needs to be, and if a certain line of code just looks nicer at 120 characters then I'll let it be.

    [Corion]: marto: Oof - that means taking a day off or can you work from home?
    [marto]: Corion, I can do some non-technical things, but there's no way for me to connect to the clients network.
    [marto]: which is a shame, I had a really productive day yesterday
    [Corion]: marto: Meh, so it'll be a day of cleaning out email...
    [marto]: and hoped that I'd be able to continue the momentum :)
    [marto]: I can't even access client email, nor my employers since those idiots moved to citrix
    [marto]: it literally doesn't work. Also, via their citrix interface theres no way to open attachments, or upload an attachment for sending. The company policy is that you email you work account from a personal one, and forward it on from there :/
