I am logging a long string to standard out for debugging using system.out.println.
How can I limit it to just the first 80 characters or so?

can you say, for wexample, if your string is myString:

log.debug(myString.substring(0, Math.min(myString.length()-1,80)));

using system.out.println

You should use a proper logging framework. Logback is the best. It will give you complete control over the length of your logged strings. Although there is quite a bit of code on this page, it's for illustrative purposes - you don't need to write any
