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?

How many lines it would take to complete the task? I don't see how anything could know that.

Well it at least focused on writing the code in the shortest amount of lines.

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"?

this was just simple stuff and the lines where formatted so it was readable. I will continue to search through this forum hoping to find it.

You're probably talking about Code Golf.

nope, but I'll check out the site. It is kinda along the same lines though except it's strictly for Java
