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

    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.
