News80 chars per line is great PinstaffTerrence Dorsey25-Mar-13 13:10 
Probably the most controversial part of PEP 8 is the limit of 80 characters per line. Well, is actually 79 chars, but I’ll use 80 chars because is a round number and the way everybody referes to it.... It seems that, naturally, Python code tends to occupy around 35-60 characters (without indentation). Longer lines than that are much less frequent. Having suddenly a line much longer than the rest feels strange and somehow ugly.... So, even if the initial intention probably has little to do with all those things, I really feel that this limitation helps me writing more readable and compact code. I am sort of a “readability” integrist, in the way that I feel that readability in the code is the most important consideration by default, and should be keeping in mind at all times.
Could you code effectively with an 80-character line limit today?
