There was a site mentioned here awhile back. It gave you a project/task, I think you typed the code into the website and it checked the code for you. It even said how many lines of code it would take to complete the task. Anyone remember what that site is? Anymore sites like that one?
I think you are missing David's point. Lines of code is the most useless metric on the face of the Earth (unless you count the angels on the head of the pin metric). Here's a class that normally takes up 64 lines of well-formatted code in 13 lines:
Do you like it? It could also be written as a single line.
Is the number of lines a measure of anything useful? Would any two people writing the same class come up with the exact same code and formatting? Which of their line counts would be "better"?
