I wonder if any of you have a policy on column width when writing code.
Ruby and Ruby on Rails don’t seem to have set any rule.
Merb says “80 column line width except in exceptional situations”
- What’s your personal thoughts on column width? Needed or not needed?
- If you work alone, do you have a personal policy?
- If you work in a team, do you have a guideline?
I feel 80 is too narrow. Even when working with a notebook, people
have like 13 inch display.
- What’s the optimal width if you set?
I don’t have much programming experience, so I would like to hear from
