Re^7: Cyclomatic Complexity of Perl code
in thread Cyclomatic Complexity of Perl code
Yes of course there are examples that defy consistent evaluation by any given metric, and I thought we were in agreement that their misuse was dreadful, but you seem deaf to the idea that metrics are just clues, the answers lie in the code itself, and that without metrics there is nothing short of domain knowledge and production feedback that can help to distinguish one blob of code from from millions of others.
And just how much effort do you think it takes to run some code through a metric-gathering program?
