    All it tells me is that SLOCCount is based on false premises. It's just stupid to think that a year of programming is worth a million dollars. Who wrote SLOCCount? A programmer, duh! :) I'm sure you can find ways of arguing that secretaries are worth a million dollars (most are worth way more than they earn, that's for sure), janitors are worth a million dollars, security personel, etc..
    • All your comment tells me is that it's based on false premises :)

      Firstly, the dollar value sloccount sets is based on effort, not value, and for a finished product, and is based on standard estimate models with a reasonable track record.

      That is, if that code was a finished product, how much should it have cost to develop.
