SLOCCount is a set of tools for counting physical Source Lines of Code (SLOC) in a large number of languages of a potentially large set of programs. SLOCCount can automatically identify and measure a large number of different languages. SLOCCount includes a number of heuristics, so it can automatically detect file types, even those that don't use the "standard" extensions, and conversely, it can detect many files that have a standard extension but aren't really of that type. The SLOC counters have enough smarts to handle oddities of several languages. For example, SLOCCount examines assembly language files, determines the comment scheme, and then correctly counts the lines automatically. It also correctly handles language constructs that are often mishandled by other tools, such as Python's constant strings when used as comments and Perl's "perlpod" documentation.
SLOCCount will even automatically estimate the effort, time, and money it would take to develop the software (if it was developed as traditional proprietary software). Without options, it will use the basic COCOMO model, which makes these estimates solely from the count of lines of code, but the documentation describes how to provide more detailed information to improve estimation accuracy.
