57 * 4 / 3 = 76

the max length for a base64 coded line required by rfc2045 for MIME encoded data (mails).

No idea if the 60 has any hard technical background though.

Anyway, I don't know if such a character level encoding is the solution to Mike's problem. After all, this is completely unaware of the structure of the data encoded.

Serializer/Formats as Data::Dumper, XML, YAML generate output which can be described by contextfree languages, which probably is no coincidence. Resorting to the pumping lemma the maximal distance between the start/end braces/tags/indentation-changes corresponding to the start/end of an embedded serialized substructure is not limited, which sounds quite incompatible to "chunk" (i.e. fixed-length) to me.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
