I have used
pmccabe on a number of occasions. For a first
order approximation, it does okay. However, I was interested in
zeroing in on the modules that needed the most help and there were a
lot of modules needing help. I was finding I was looking at some
functions where I ought to have been looking at others. So, I put
this together to see if there was a better correlation between what
seemed like hard code to me and the score derived by an analysis tool.
This has worked much better. I ran
pmccabe against several million lines of code. I correlated
the scores. Where the two tools disagreed noticeably in relative
ranking, I took a closer look. I found that ‘complexity’ did,
indeed, seem to be more appropriate in its scoring.
