in reply to Test/ Code Ratio

Ignoring the coverage stats and just looking at pure size, what you might be interested to do is to take PPI, load each file from the code and tests and find the number of significant tokens in each.

That would give you some idea of size in non-line terms.

I've been thinking about writing something like this for a while.

    What's PPI?
      Eep, sorry.

      PPI is (originally) short for Parse::Perl::Isolated. It parses perl as a Document, without using perl itself.

      The "Signficicant Tokens" metric ignores lines, variable name lengths, string length, POD and just goes on the complexity of the code itself, and can be found using something like the following.

      use PPI; # Load a perl document my $Document = PPI::Document->load( 'mycode.pl' ); my $significant = grep { ! $_->significant } $Document->tokens;
