So, today I was faced with an problem at work where i had to find out how many lines of executable code does each project have in our solution.
Opening a code file and counting each line individually is not a great approach, especially if you have 100+ projects.
So, I thought of using regular expressions to get different parts of the ncover report.
At first I was getting a list of all projects by using the following regular expression:
<module.*?name=".*? Project1.dll| Project2.dll ".*?>[\s\n\r\f]* (<method.*?>[\s\n\r\f]*(<seqpnt.*?/>[\s\n\r\f]*)*</method>[\s\n\r\f]*)* </module>
This expression is going to give a list of modules with all of its internals: methods and lines;
Next I was finding all methods by the following expression:
Finally, you can get list of all lines by using the following expression:
To make it easier to analyze, you might want to save the output into a text file after each regular expression execution.
