comment Is it good to keep the bugfix comments within the code?
Nice, this supports the idea of comments telling "Why" some code is there. See programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/1/…

comment Shouldn't we count characters of code and comments instead of lines of code and comments?
Wow, you did not mention that my question was stupid, and at the same time you provided a detailed, motivated and relevant alternative ! Thx (:

Maybe my boss wants to know the size of the project to decide whether to allocate more people to it (If my boss actually though that way, I'd spit in his face, though). Maybe I'm trying to get the LOC down. Maybe I'm curious about the comment/code ratio. Maybe I want to have a rough idea of the complexity of a program written in two different languages. Etc.

I'm personnally using LOC count to check whether my code is bloated. When going up too much, I try refactoring to get the LOC down.

I think I overshot the 200-guys thing... I can't remember too well, it was more than 10 years ago. I mailed him the question anyway!
