If you have to count the lines of code in all
programs in the directories under your home directory how would you do that?
Please help in finding out the solution
Thanks in advance

wc (word count) counts characters, words and lines, so "wc -l" can count the number of lines.

And with a command like "find" you can find files, for example all *.java files in a certain directory:
find /home/divya -name *.java
See the man pages for these commands:
