Spotting Code

This simple solution describes how to use file and ohcount to compare their abilities to spot text files that are actually code.

n.b. MacPorts has a ohcount package, so installing that way is very easy.

For file, I used

find . -type f -exec file --mime-type {} \; > ../file.txt

For ohcount I used

find . -type f -exec ohcount -d {} \; > ../ohcount.txt

I then reformatted file.txt to use tab separators, imported the data into Excel, generated hit rates and made pie charts.
