     Java Programming Style Guide
   
 





1 - Formatting

1.4 - Maximum Line Length

Do not make lines longer than 120 characters. If your code starts to get
indented way to the right, consider breaking your code into more methods.

handle 120 characters. Longer lines can be frustrating to work with.</em>
