comment Descriptive naming vs. 80 character lines
Everyone has his preference. Someone like short lines of code even by breaking a line. But I don't always like that. Sometimes unpleasant breaking makes your code even harder to read. On another hand, too many long lines are also annoying, as you have to scroll back and forth for each line -- you may have to scroll hundreds of times before you finish reading a short program. So I think one or two long lines is not a big deal for well organized code. I think descriptive is more important in most cases.
