LOC (Line of code) is considered as one of the easiest measure for various purposes by stakeholders. It is a software metric used to measure the size of a software program by counting the number of lines in the program's source code. It is also used as an estimation method for calculating effort involved in software development process. This paper shows the existing software LOC metric tools. An experiment is conducted on a same java project for different set of freely available LOC count tools. Results thus obtained have high level of variability in one of the tool and makes them difficult in reaching some assessments. So, the stakeholder must consider other aspects as well to reach at correct elucidation.
