I would think that clang-format should be able to help you out with this. It is part of the LLVM download.

Yes, QtCreator will let us set a right margin of 80 columns and can be
configured to wrap, but, that only helps with new code, not thousands
of lines of old code. I was hoping Artistic Style would have an option
to flag physical lines > 80 characters long, but don't see that.
Is there some Linux tool which can be integrated with QtCreator which
will enforce a maximum physical source line length by flagging it as
an error or providing some kind of "find instances" search ability? I
assume there has to be one since BARR-C:2018 (and its predecessors)
are so widely used.
Hoping to avoid a "just wrap" solution. Would like to really adhere to
the spirit of the standard, even if we end up overriding to 130
characters as quite a few shops do.
