Estimating OCaml project cost with the COCOMO model?

The tool sloccount, which applies the COCOMO regression model, doesn’t know how to estimate the cost of ocaml code.

Anyone have thoughts on how to add support, or know of an alternate tool?

btw Please let’s not spend this thread talking about how outrageous using LOC to estimate software cost is. ‘Software Engineering Economics’ kool-aid drinkers only.

Just an idea: take the median cost between Java and Haskell.


What’s the rationale there?

My guts. :wink:
More seriously: OCaml is less verbose than Java but more verbose than Haskell.
And those two languages are also statically typed.
