Any line in an @example that is longer than about 61 characters will 
trigger overfull hbox in TeX.  Any line in @smallexample that is longer 
than 64 characters will do the same.  So it's advisable to break long 
lines into two, even if they must be a single line in actual usage.  You 
can always say in a side note that the line must not be broken.
