       cccc - C and C++ Code Counter, a software metrics tool


       cccc [options] file1.c ...


       CCCC  analyses  and  reports  measurements  of  source  code  in C, C++, and Java.  It was
       developed to augment programmers' instinctive application of numeric rules of thumb  about
       what constitutes high or low quality products with an automated analysis tool.

       CCCC processes the files listed on its command line.  If the filenames include ‘-’, read a
       list of files from standard input.

       This program is work in progress and is not well documented.  Please be prepared to  refer
       to the source code for the meaning of some options.
