Description Dan Jacobson 2007-04-01 15:14:17 UTC
What kind of computers do you use to write MonoBook.php? Browsing the
source code is too wide for my screen, and no I don't use a VT100 :-)
"Snob code width snubs One Laptop Per Child kids".

This (inefficiently) finds other long lined files:
$ set $(find * -name \*.php)
$ for i do perl -nwe 'BEGIN{$a=0}
  $a=length()>$a?length():$a;END{print $a,"\t"}' $i;
  echo $i;done|sort -nr

Line length is reduced when we refactor or rewrite code. It's a slow process,
but more effective than doing a massive re-shuffle, which causes lots of faux
diffs to appear all over the Subversion logs.

It's better now, if not perfect. Marking WORKSFORME.
