Hi Mac...

What has the norm in terms of total code length for this project been in the past few years?

I counted my project to be 1937 lines of code.

Now i know that concise code can always do the job, but I've always believed in rather having 5 lines of code that you can read and understand, which does the same work as 2 lines of confusing complex code.

Everybody else feel free to also post your code lengths here smiling smiley

Have a great last weekend of stress everybody!

Here's hoping we all finish on time!

No limit - and shorter is not better as longer is not better..... I try and follow your logic. So commenting your code helps a lot....
