( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I can give you an example program that analyses C++ code. It has as input a tags file and a bunch of C++ code. And it generates a bunch of html files showing the class hierachy and the complexity off all classes. It does this in three steps:

  1. It parses the tagsfile to figure out where to find all the classes and operations in the code, and to build the class tree. This uses a fair amount of regular expressions and a couple of functions that recursively walks through a hashes and arrays.
  2. It scans the c++ source files to figure out how many lines of code there are per operation and class. The results are later used to sort the classes according to complexity.
  3. It transforms the results into html files.

The code has not been optimized, and I think there probably plenty of stuff to optimize. It has about 20 subs. It was written when I just started programming in Perl, so it probably can also be used to show how to improve style and programming techniques.

You would need to have a fair amount of C++ code to analyse and access to a ctags program. In addition, the C++ code should not use any namespaces.

Have Fun

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
