What about the all too (perhaps not completely understood by me) easy

print "Total lines in $0: ". __LINE__ ."\n";

Could you just put that at the end of your script? That would give you your line count wouldn't it?

$ perl My output from the script Total lines in 37
Although I admit that the original question is a very good one and one that I am quite interested to see a more "official" answer to. I am still quite new to Perl and I do the wc route to getting my line counts for my scripts. Actually, I do something closer to:

$ egrep -v "^#" | wc -l

or something more informative...

echo "$(egrep -v "^#" - $(egrep "#"" | bc

Which would at least give me my actual lines of code minus my comments. I just finished a script that was 1/3 comments.
