Count your lines! Count them one by one

· June 18, 2007

Here is something that always is a point of discussion in software development projects; “How many lines of code is this, anyway?”

This is a add-in to Visual Studio (worked like a charm on my 2005 version) that counts the lines of code, in- and excluding comments and blank rows if you want to.

Really nice actually and quite fun also. It is at least some kind of measurement, for the project management anyway.

Oh yeah - in six weeks we have produced 48 000 lines of code… We’re so proud! But also, I once heard that typically a programmer introduce a bug with every 100 lines of code he write; that gives us 480 bugs in the system. For that we would not be so proud.. :)
