Arduino Sketch support

Are you a hobbiest involved with the Arduino family of microcontroller boards? Most Arduino scripts are relatively short and sweet. However, the potential exists to build quite large and extensive projects with the Arduino Sketch language. If you need to know exactly how much Sketch you have created, you're in luck - EZ-Metrix supports Arduino Sketch language. Because "The Arduino language is based on C/C++" (according to the Arduino Reference), it can be counted with an EZ-Metrix rule like C++.

The example below (borrowed from the Arduino website, serves as an example. EZ-Metrix counts this file (with a C++ rule); 9 lines of code, 4 blank lines and 11 comments, for a total of 24 lines.

Let me know if you're using EZ-Metrix on your Arduino Sketches (email me).

Turns on an LED on for one second, then off for one second, repeatedly.

This example code is in the public domain.

// Pin 13 has an LED connected on most Arduino boards.
// give it a name:
int led = 13;

// the setup routine runs once when you press reset:
void setup() {
// initialize the digital pin as an output.
pinMode(led, OUTPUT);

// the loop routine runs over and over again forever:
void loop() {
digitalWrite(led, HIGH); // turn the LED on (HIGH is the voltage level)
delay(1000); // wait for a second
digitalWrite(led, LOW); // turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW
delay(1000); // wait for a second
