Is there a SLOC counter for XSLT available. I would like to get some form of size measurements for this type of coding.
I've never heard of one.
But since XSLT is expressed in XML, it'd be pretty easy to write a stylesheet to run over stylesheets and do things like count the number of templates, count the number of instructions and instructions per template, count the numer of modes and named templates, etc. "Lines of code" in the strict sense is pretty meaningless in XML.
Is it a permathread somewhere to debate whether any such measurements have any value? Typically when I've been hired to rewrite someone else's buggy code, the fixed code has been shorter (sometimes much shorter) than the unfixed code.
