Consecutive characters

I'm parsing (or attempting to parse) a textarea form submission. I'd like to replace all line breaks with
(which is working), and I'd also like to insert a
after 30 consecutive non-space characters, if they exist. I was given a suggestion, but without explanation, so I wasn't sure how to implement it. This is what I've got, but it's definitely not right. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

$new_issue = $ilmscript->param('Issue');
$new_issue =~ s/"^[^ ]{30}$"/g;
$new_issue =~ s/\r?\n/g;
