search terms: kloc == one thousand lines of code
the problem is what is a 'line of code'?
do you want to count just semicolons?
and does it count if a line has both
and a comment ?
we have (at least) three types of comments in SAS:
/* comment */
%* macro comment;
asterick statements are easy: they occur at statement boundaries
slash asterisk comments can cut across anything:
intra- as well as inter-statement comments
and macro comments can appear within SAS statements:
attrib I length = 4 %*integer;
J length = 4 %*integer;
X length = 8 %*real;
