    smallest program at work was probably about 3-4000 lines. The biggest was between 16 and 17 million lines of code (luckily I did not need to write it all by myself ). Took about 30 minutes to compile on a P4 1.7GHz using Borland C++ 5.

    I never counted lines. We have one C++ Client/Server/Server ( yes, two different Servers ). The servers compile in 2 minutes, the client in 10 probably because of all the graphical stuff. One of the servers needs 20 libraries which compile in 3 minutes each. Fortunately, a full recompile is only needed about once a month.

    We have another Client/Server/Server Project ( we love this kind of structure, don't we *g* ) in C# of approximately same size which takes about the same time to compile.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    that owns!!! I can't wait to get a job programming and making a program that takes that long to compile. I feel cool when just my code in the GUI takes more than a milisecond to load, and you can imagine how fast my code compiles . But I'm working on it!

    Please explain your reasoning in bumping this several month old thread.

    edit:

    Look at rule 5 of the board rules.

    You make 2 crappy threads and then bump a thread that's 8 months old? I'd watch my step if I were you.
