lines of code

lines of code in Technology

programming, unit
(LOC) A common measure of the size or progress of a programming project. For example, one can describe a completed project as consisting of 100,000 LOC; or one can characterise a week's progress as 5000 LOC.
Using LOC as a metric of progress encourages programmers to reinvent the wheel or split their code into lots of short lines.
