Ohcount is a library for counting lines of source code. It was originally developed at Ohloh, and is used to generate the reports at www.ohloh.net.
Ohcount has two main components: a detector which determines the primary language family used by a particular source file, and a parser which provides a line-by-line breakdown of the contents of a source file.
Ohcount includes a command line tool that allows you to count individual files or whole directory trees. It also allows you to find source code files by language family, or to create a detailed annotation of an individual source file.
Ohcount includes a Ruby binding which allows you to directly access its language detection features from a Ruby application.
Ohcount is supported on Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5 and Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Other Linux environments should also work, but your mileage may vary.
Ohcount does not support Windows.
Ohcount targets Ruby 1.8.7. The build script requires a bash shell. You also need a C compiler to build the native extensions.
Ohcount source code is available as a Git repository:
git clone git://github.com/blackducksw/ohcount.git
You will need ragel 6.3 or higher, bash, pcre, magic, gcc (version 4.1.2 or greater) and SWIG. Once you have them, go to the top directory of ohcount and run
Once you've built ohcount, the executable program will be at bin/ohcount. The most basic use is to count lines of code in a directory tree. run:
Ohcount support several options. Run
ohcount --help for more information.
To build the ruby wrapper:
To build the python wrapper, run
python python/setup.py build python python/setup.py install
The python wrapper is currently unsupported.
