Stats can report negative numbers for LOC/M

Reported by Dan Mayer | January 22nd, 2010 @ 09:17 PM

This occurs when there when there are few lines of code and many methods. It ends up averaging to 0 or 1 LOC per method , but then it does -2 presumable for the original def ... end statement. We noticed various -2 showing up in the stats for projects on Caliper. This is a simple one line patch.

    Am I missing anything? Shouldn't the subtraction by 2 be removed in this line before you go on to subtract by 2 in a new line?

    loc_over_m = (statistics["codelines"] / statistics["methods"]) - 2 rescue loc_over_m = 0

    the -2 removes the def method and end lines when there is a method as they shouldn't count. The issue is when it has 0 or 1 as a result it outputs -1 or -2.
