Useless thread about some useless statistics

Discussion in 'Python' started by Daniel Nogradi, Nov 15, 2006.

  1. I recently came across the program 'sloccount' that attempts to
    calculate the time and money that went into writing software.
    http://www.dwheeler.com/sloccount/

    If ran on the source code of python 2.5 the results are the following:

    Total Physical Source Lines of Code (SLOC) = 689,996
    Development Effort Estimate, Person-Years = 191.35
    Estimated Average Number of Developers = 48.52
    Total Estimated Cost to Develop = $ 25,848,213
    Please credit this data as "generated using David A. Wheeler's 'SLOCCount'."

    I'm wondering if the person-years and estimated average number of
    developers numbers are accurate or not - not that it's of any
    importance, just wondering. And about the 25 million dollars total
    price tag, well, ummmmm :)
