vrf Source Line Counter

Question asked by robert on Jun 14, 2003
This is another one of those questions that gets repeated every year or two.

The simple answer is no.  If you need to impress someone with your coding
skills and speed, use a text editor to look at the .vee file.  On that
basis, VEE is a real performance improvement tool compared to any text-based
language.  After all specification, design, coding, debugging, testing, and
documentation, programming is about one line per hour for text-based
languages.  VEE is about one object per hour.  You still need to do all the
steps, but the coding itself is just faster.  Look at the .vee file for a
ten-object function and consider how "productive" you are.

If you are after a measure of individual productivity, you need to compare
time to produce the "code" to implement a specific function.  Try a time
comparison, make a VEE function of ten to twenty objects.  Then translate it
to C or C++.  My experience is that an hour of VEE is about the same as four
hours of C for just the coding.
