I had the chance to attend the PHP Qu├ębec Conference this year. It was very interesting. I highly encourage anyone to attend such conferences if he / she is interested by PHP.

Anyway during one of the presentation, I discovered an interesting little script / tool named PHPLoc. It is written by Sebastian Bergmann and It will basically parse php files (of a project for intstance) and return some informations related to its size.

Here is an example directly taken from github.com :
