perltidy does

confess "Insufficent data in X from {hash lookup} through {hash lookup} so +urce data file {hash lookup}" unless $condition;
which seems reasonable, although these days I prefer "condition or" to "unless"
$condition or confess "Insufficent data in X from {hash lookup} through {hash lookup} source + data file {hash lookup}";

I've tried my hand at concatenation

$condition or confess "Insufficent data in X from {hash lookup} " . "through {hash lookup} source data file {hash lookup}";
And I it is pleasing to the eye, but I wouldn't do that by hand typing (editor IDE should handle it automagically). This also makes searching source code slightly more keyboard clicks but its not a deal breaker for me.

I also like

$condition or confessn "Insufficent data in X from {hash lookup} through {hash lookup} source data file {hash lookup}";
where confessn would do some newline squashing

But mostly I just let it go past 80 chars cause is the least hassle and works with all editors :)
