Metrics calculation


The Metrics plug-in allows the automatic computation of various measures on the source code.

It can be used to compute the following measures:

  • McCabe’s cyclomatic complexity;

  • Halstead complexity;

  • Eva coverage estimate.


This plug-in can be partly used with the graphical user interface. In batch mode, the command line may look like:

frama-c -metrics file1.c file2.c


This plug-in depends on results of the Eva plug-in for the -metrics-eva-cover option.

The use of this plug-in is detailed in its short documentation.
