|Synopsis:||Do not create overly long source lines|
Long lines are hard to read. Many applications, such as printing and difference views, perform poorly with long lines. A maximum line length of 80 characters has proven workable for C and C++. However, C# tends to be more verbose and have deeper nesting compared to C++, so the limit of 80 characters will often cause a statement to be split over multiple lines, thus making it somewhat harder to read. This standard does not set any explicit limit on the length of a source line, thus leaving the definition of 'too long' to groups or projects.
