Abstract

Software metrics gives developers and their client and users of Software information about the quality of their Software products. They are employed in taking decisions at various levels of Software Life Cycle (SLC). This paper presents a novel metric for measuring the readability of Software Source Code (SC). Maintenance changes (addition, removal or modification), though, are initially carried out on the Software design artifacts, they are eventually performed on the Software SC as the finished product. Thus this metric is relevant in estimating the readability quality of SCs. The metric is ratio scaled and size independent. Results showed that the metric objectively measures the readability of SC.to alleviate such impacts.
