Counting Lines of Source Code in PowerShell | Precision Computing

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/04/30

Precision Computing is a site by Lee Holmes having a great blog with PowerShell tips. Of course he does, as he is part of the PowerShell team and he wrote Windows PowerShell Cookbook: The Complete Guide to Scripting Microsoft’s New Command Shell.

The Counting Lines of Source Code in PowerShell entry is on counting C# code lines (and shows some great performance optimization tips).

I knew about the blog, and bumped into the entry because of file – Lines-of-code counting for many C# solutions – Stack Overflow.

Last year I inherited a suite of .NET projects totaling about 4 million LOC. Which I want to drastically reduce to make it more maintainable.

Type 1 fonts and Windows 7/Vista/XP: 2 ways for installing them

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/04/29

This works for Windows XP and Windows Vista too:


Just tested out installing a few T1 fonts. There are two general rules for how to do this.

  1. Drag/drop both the PFM and PFB files (the INF and AFM files aren’t important nor needed) to C:\Windows\Fonts
  2. Open each font by clicking on the PFM and clicking the Install button at the top of the font preview window.

#2 is slower, but it works as well as any other with any font type that Windows 7 supports:

Note: If you drag/drop Type 1 fonts (PFB/PFM) to the Windows\Fonts folder, Windows 7 may complain when copying the PFB saying that it’s missing the PFM and that you should install using the PFM.

Either way – both methods work tho #2 is preferred when dealing with a T1 font.

Stack Overflow: Congrats, you’ve gained the privilege – protect questions learn more

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/04/27

Every once in a while, you achieve a new privilege on Stack Overflow.

I’m not a score hunter, but I am interested in what Stack Overflow presents at what level.

The 15000 mark on StackOverflow got me this prrivilege:

Congrats, you’ve gained the privilege – protect questions learn more

It is about protecting questions from gaining lots of noise.

I need to be more often on Stack Overflow to execute it, but it is good to know that I can do it when needed.

Note that depending on the site (StackOverflow, Stack Exchange, meta, etc) the marks differ.
