Cyclomatic complexity - Wikipedia

CentralNotice From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation , search Cyclomatic complexity is a software metric , used to indicate the complexity of a program. It is a quantitative measure of the number of linearly independent paths through a program's source code . It was developed by Thomas J. McCabe, Sr. in 1976. Cyclomatic complexity is computed using the control flow graph of the program: the nodes of the graph correspond to indivisible groups of commands of a program, and a directed edge connects two nodes if the second command might be executed immediately after the first command. Cyclomatic complexity may also be applied to individual functions , modules , methods or classes within a program. One testing strategy, called basis path testing by McCabe who first proposed it, is to test each linearly independent path through the program; in this case, th...
