in reply to 78/80 chars perl line still a meaningful rule
Generally speaking I treat 76 characters as a "soft limit". I try to keep lines under that, and wrap them if they're going to be longer. However, sometimes the wrapped version would be less legible than the original, so I'll tolerate lines of 80, 90 or even 100 characters.
