Subject Count Task
Date Tue, 12 Mar 2002 18:39:05 GMT

Hi everybody,

I'm new to the ant community so I'll keep this short.

I've developed a new task called "count" which summarizes the line counts
of a project.
Currently the following file types are implemented:

The syntax of the task is for instance:
<count dir="." recursive="true" filter="java,xml,html"/>

This recursively counts the source code lines of Java, XML and HTML
files (filter="java,xml,html") beginning in the current
directory (dir=".") and iterating in all nested directories (recursive="true")

the output is something like this:
 [count] XML files in /homes/valentin/testing/ant:
 [count]     8 program lines
 [count]     3 comment lines
 [count]     2 blank lines
 [count]     13 lines in total
 [count] Java files in /homes/valentin/testing/ant:
 [count]     12 program lines
 [count]     13 comment lines
 [count]     4 blank lines
 [count]     29 lines in total
 [count] HTML files in /homes/valentin/testing/ant:
 [count]     6 program lines
 [count]     3 comment lines
 [count]     2 blank lines
 [count]     11 lines in total
 [count] ---------------------------------------------
 [count] All files in /homes/valentin/testing/ant:
 [count]     26 program lines
 [count]     19 comment lines
 [count]     8 blank lines
 [count]     53 lines in total

So I just wanted to know if the Ant community would be interested in this task
or if another existing task already performs this.

Thank you
