How can I measure number of lines of code in my PHP web development projects?
Edit: I’m interested in windows tools only
If you’re using a full fledged IDE the quick and dirty way is to count the number of “\n” patterns using the search feature (assuming it supports regexes)
Check CLOC, it’s a source code line counter that supports many languages, I always recommend it.
It will differentiate between actual lines of code, blank lines or comments, it’s very good.
In addition there are more code counters that you can check:
No experience if it runs on Windows, tho, but searching on the web showed some results of people getting it to work on Windows..
If you are on a linux box, the easiest way is probably directed by this SO question:
Our SD Source Code Search Engine is a GUI for searching across large bodies of source code such as a PHP web site. It is fast because it preindexes the source code.
As a side effect of the indexing process, it also computes metrics on the source code base, including SLOC, Comments, blank lines, Cyclomatic and Halsted complexity numbers.
And it runs on Windows.
