Ever wondered how many lines a project you have worked on for a month (or maybe for a year!)? Well, we did this for you Smile | :)

This program (LineCounter) was developed with one purpose only: to count your lines!

The program is able to count source code, comments (both styles: "// comment" and "/* comment */"), and blank lines. It shows the results in a couple of editboxes, and has a preview window (right click on the list).

The program opens the project file (.dsp) and throws it through the parsing code. After parsing is done the list of project files is steped-by-step and lines are counted.

That's it! The source code is pretty self explanatory, so I guess you'll manage.

Actually Visual Studio 6 does at least provide a way for you to print all open documents. It is one of the sample Macros. I am sure that with a little tweaking you can edit the macro such that it does not require the documents to be open in order to print (i.e. it will open them to print, then close them.
