Enter NetBeans code metrics

Geertjan writes, "More often than not, you know your code is pretty messed up. The excuse you have is that you inherited it from someone else.

This scripting environment enables users to use established programming language constructs like loops (for, or while), conditional statements (if-else), etc in both interactive and scripting mode..."
