A lot of people have replied with something equivalent to "It depends what you're trying to measure." In my case I was cleaning up some legacy database code left by a programmer with a particularly bad case of the cut-n-paste coding style. I was abstacting the low-level routines, and was curious to how much I was actually able to remove from the other routines.

I got to wondering what people actually measured when called upon. In the end in just took a guestimate with "egrep -c '}|;' <filename>".

Of course, line-count (high or low) by itself means nothing. Don't worry, I fudged a few in my military programming days ;)

Thanks to all for the replies.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
