A comparison of the Halstead and McCabe methods of measuring program complexity with a recently proposed metric, which is based on the analysis of dependency computations using a data flowgraph model, is presented. The sensitivity of the metric to changes in the data structure is discussed. Comments and criticisms of the measures are included.
