In general, yes. 280 lines is long. Too long, likely. Usually it
indicates you aren't designing your code in a top-down fashion, and it
is a high candidate for refactoring in order to break out into
reusable functions. A rule of thumb is no more than 50 lines per
function, most much less. Back in the day when we didn't have nifty
gui screens and an 24 line terminals (yay green on black!), if a
function exceeded one printed page, it was deemed too long and marked
for refactoring.
