       pymetrics - Python source code metrics


       pymetrics [options] files...


       This manual page documents briefly the pymetrics command

       pymetrics is a program that produces metrics for Python programs. Metrics include McCabe's
       Cyclomatic Complexity metric, LoC, %Comments, etc. Users can also define their own metrics
       using  data  from PyMetrics. PyMetrics optionally outputs to stdout, SQL command files and
       CSV files.


       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options  starting  with
       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.

       -h, --help
              show this help message and exit

              name of output SQL command file. (Default is metricData.sql)

              name of output SQL token table. (Default is metricTokens)

              name of output SQL metrics table. (Default is metricData)

              name of output CSV data file. (Default is metricData.csv)

       -f INFILELIST, --files=INFILELIST
              File containing list of path names to modules for analysis.

              list  of metrics to include in run. This is a comma separated list of metric module
              names with no whitespace. Optionally, you can specify the class name of the  metric
              by  following  the module name with a colon (:) and the metric class name. (Default
              metrics  are  'simple:SimpleMetric,mccabe:McCabeMetric,sloc:SLOC  Metric'.  Default
              metric  class  name  for metric module 'wxYz' is 'WxYzMetric' when only module name
              given -- note capitalized metric class name.)

       -l LIBNAME, --library=LIBNAME
              user-defined name applied to collection of modules (Default is '')

       -e, --exists
              assume SQL tables exist and does not generate creation code. Using this option sets
              option -N. (Default is False)

       -N, --noold
              create  new  command  output  files  and tables after deleting old results, if any.
              Ignored if -e is set.  (Default is False)

       -B, --nobasic
              suppress production of Basic metrics (Default is False)

       -S, --nosql
              suppress production of output SQL command text file.  (Default is False)

       -C, --nocsv
              suppress production of CSV output text file. (Default is False)

       -H, --noheadings
              suppress heading line in csv file. (Default is False)

       -k, --kwcnt
              generate keyword counts. (Default is False)

       -K, --nokwcnt
              suppress keyword counts. (Default is True)

       -q, --quiet
              suppress normal summary output to stdout. (Default is False)

       -z, --zero
              display zero or empty  values  in  output  to  stdout.   (Default  is  to  suppress
              zero/empty output)

       -v, --verbose
              Produce  verbose  output  -  more  -v's produce more output. (Default is no verbose
              output to stdout)

       -d, --debug
              Provide debug output, not usually generated - internal use only
