Hey, that's a totally cool statistic -- from the 50,000 foot level. And, at a glance, that may be all we would want to look at.

Looking a little closer, here are a few questions:

  • is 15,000,000 lines of code better than, let's say, 14,000,000 lines code?
  • what percentage is actively maintained?
  • what percentage is duplication (modules that accomplish the same task)
  • what percentage is "production ready"
  • ...and more

CPANTS tries to answer some of these questions with Kwalitee metrics (and succeeds to some degree). As for the others, I'm not sure we can find an answer -- and maybe it's not important -- I'm just looking at it from a different perspective.

Cheers.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
