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.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
