Does anyone know of a good line counter utility that counts lines of code?  The program needs to count lines of individual functions also.

Under Unix, I just use the command
      tr -dc '{;' | wc -c
This counts semicolons and opening braces as "lines of code"
only.   That's good for coping with varying amounts of comments.
If you don't use Unix, you can do the same in a very short C++ program of your own writing.
