Does anyone know if there is some kind of tool to put a number on technical debt of a code base, as a kind of code metric? If not, is anyone aware of an algorithm or set of heuristics for it? If ...
Is there a metric analogous to the McCabe Complexity measure to measure how cohesive a routine is and also how loosely (or tightly) coupled the routine is to other code in the same code base?
I was reading the Wikipedia article on Douglas McIlroy and found a quote that mentions "The real hero of programming is the one who writes negative code." What does that mean?
I'm wondering if someone has done some experiments correlating code metrics (SLOC, Cyclomatic Complexity, etc) with bug density in Object Oriented applications. I'm not looking for experiments that ...
Relation between “ lines of the longest working program ” in a language and familiarity with it? [closed]
In some computer master program online application, it says: Please list the programming languages in which you have written programs. For each language, indicate the length in lines of the ...
