Totals grouped by language (dominant language first):
python: 1618 (84.58%)
ansic: 291 (15.21%)

Total Physical Source Lines of Code (SLOC) = 1,913
Development Effort Estimate, Person-Years (Person-Months) = 0.40 (4.74)
(Basic COCOMO model, Person-Months = 2.4 * (KSLOC**1.05))
Schedule Estimate, Years (Months) = 0.38 (4.52)
(Basic COCOMO model, Months = 2.5 * (person-months**0.38))
Estimated Average Number of Developers (Effort/Schedule) = 1.05
Total Estimated Cost to Develop = $ 53,388
(average salary = $56,286/year, overhead = 2.40).
