in reply to Line Counts are (mostly) Meaningless
in thread Line-counts of perl programs/modules

I like to think of it in a procedure to procedure mannor. Say I have a bit of text data or data structure or some sort of permutation or whatever, more often than not the less number of lines of code(or char's of code in some cases) the better the method of doing that procedure. As well as from my own personal experience, the more and more I code perl the shorter my scripts get :) So as far as amount of work goes with programming, its not(at least for me) the number of lines of code, its how long the programmer spent coding those lines of code.
