Did I miss the heated and crazy developer debate that the new accepted line length is 120 characters?
Joking aside, I’d like to know if anyone else has changed their coding standards to allow for a bigger line length because of changes in source code management tools.
For a long time I’ve used 80 characters as a guideline as opposed to a set rule. Sometimes I’ll go over this but most of the time I don’t.
With bigger displays everywhere though, it appears that developers are switching to a larger line length when it comes to their coding standards.
