Niklaus Wirth says: When the source exceeds (about) 5000 lines of code, 
your source becomes too big. You need to split the source in smaller 
Also, when the program gets too complex (i.e. long) chances are you 
didn't fully understand the problem and hence your algorithm is wrong. 
So: back to the drawing table!

In C a long source is a sign of good craftsmanship.
In Modula-2 or Oberon, a short source is.
