    Counting Source Lines?

    Anyone know where I can get a simple source line number counter from? I just want to count non-blank lines in a C++ project. Something with a windows GUI is preferable.

    I used to use a thing called C Metrics, but it seems to have vanished from the face of the Earth.

    Thanks

    C-Metrics!

    huzzah!

    -just realized that it's doubly zipped/rarred for some reason...hope that's no big problem for anyone

    Get winrar if you don't have it already! (which you should...)

    Interesting, 7-zip doesnt have rar compression capability, and using zip compression gives a 871 KB filesize. Same for gzip on a tar archive. bzip2 only gives 841 KB as improvement.
    7-zip itself gives a 691 KB archive.

    Either way I cant reduce the filesize enough to attach it to my post though

    Thanks!

    I don't seem to be able to write anything under 38,000 lines.


    Found a nice completely free compression utility which did the job:

    why don't you try searching. We have done this before here

    the answer you probably want is by Perspective
    Code:
    grep -n .\* in-file > out-file

    That command adds line numbers to a file, to count lines in one file:
    Code:
    $ wc -l filename
    To count lines in the source tree:
    Code:
    $ grep "" -R source_dir | wc -l
    To count non-blank lines:
    Code:
    $ grep -v "^$" -R source_dir | wc -l
    If you run Windows, you can get grep.exe by installing Cygwin, it's a free download, just google for the name.

    or just change -n to -c, no need to pipe to wc

    grep -c .\* in-file
