  • does the "management" know that the metric is meaningless in every way? I hope that's not a real motivation for developers in your team.

    • Yes. The page is actually a vestige of the previous "regime", from at least 2 years ago, before any of the current development team were here. Management here is actually very good (that's why I joined the company), defending us upwards when needed, and let us get on with doing things properly. They're actually really happy that I'm busy cleaning things up, as less code doing the same work is something they understand and approve of.

      Our software is clearly slacking, and therefore hateful. I'm making it fit.

  • Perhaps a 5000 line addition of blank lines would help out? Or something like... perl -wle'open my $code, "file.c"; while(){ print "$_\n"} close $code;'
  • pure negative contribution.

    It took until Friday to refactor things sufficiently to kill the last 6000 lines I was aiming at.
