All issues addressed, except the 80 characters thing. Does "below 80 
characters" imply that it must be at max 79 characters, so that I have 
to enter a new line when my cursor is positioned at column 80, or is it 
column 81? I've always thought the 80 characters thing was so that it 
took the entire console screen width, i.e. with cat. If I cat these 
files, no line gets broken.
