An extension like this may be well off-topic for jazz.extend.
If so, my apologies.

My boss wants a tool to measure Lines of Code (Source Lines of Code,
Logical Lines of Code, whatever). It needs to have a command-line
interface so we can invoke it from builds, and it needs to be able to
count changes between different versions of the same code, like
counting lines added/deleted/changed between the current tip versus a
snapshot. Our primary language is Java but we have a few programs in
C. We use RTC for source control.

If anyone has suggestions, primarly for tools that are RTC-aware but
also for tools that just work on filesystems, please e-mail

Tim McDaniel,

My boss also want me to provide the "lines of code" metrics for changes between builds. Anyone have some info on this, or expert advice on not doing this?

You can use the SCM CLI to list files changed between the current state loaded for the build and a specific snapshot.

You don't mention which language you're using, but there are various tools out there for calculating LOC. See for example:

You could then publish the resulting file using the logPublisher Ant task.
