KLOC calculation tools
Are you guys aware of any tool / utility (Preferrably freeware / shareware )that would determine KLOC for a Java source files?
Thanks in advance
Re: KLOC calculation tools
As such I have not come across any tools that will give the no. of lines of code for a Java program.
You could write a simple Perl script, which could do that for you.
However, I donít think KLOC is used any more as a measure of size (at least for application software). Why exactly are you looking this?
A friend of mine who writes s/w for handsets tell me that they use KLOC for sizing, but this is not the only measure they use. They also use no of messages (roughly like your function points), memory used and MIPS
(processor time) used.
It also boils down to why use are using this sizing ? For planning ? marketing? ..?
