in reply to Perl 80 Chars perl line Rule

Q:\>perl -nle "print length" "-file Run Test Cases from this 'xlsm' File. Default = 'SanityT +estCases.xlsx'.\n"; 89

The string itself is longer than 80 chars. It is very hard for a program to break up a string in a sensible and Perl-preserving manner, so you will have to break up these lines manually.
