Where da metrics at?

Subject: Where da metrics at?

I noticed that the code metrics don't show up any more. They must have disappeared with one of the FEX upgrades, but I didn't notice when.

I for one am a little disappointed by this. True, some of the metrics were a little iffy; some people didn't like the cyclomatic complexity measure, for example. But I found value overall in the measures. They gave me some basic statistics to determine if I should even bother downloading and trying out a piece of code. If the number of mlint messages was high, or the number of lines too extravagant, or the percentage of comments too low, it might steer me away from that submission and towards others that were more worth the time to read through.

Thoughts?
Ken

It's still on the file exchange, but has been packaged up with the file exchange toolbox:

... it's quite hard to find! Unhelpfully, there is only one link to it, from a technical solutions page.
