Re: The 80 char per line limit

Alex Granovsky


thanks for your suggestion. Seems like a good candidate to implement in Firefly version 8.0.1

Kind regards,

It's hardly ever mentioned in the documentation, so after many frustating errors I couldn't understand, I finally figured this out... lol.

>So I have a suggestion, since firefly has a preprocessor, maybe it could autosplit lines that are too long, or give a warning or error indicating that some line is over 80 chars, because the gamess core just gives some generic error that is not helpful.
