In this tutorial, we will discuss How To Install exp_count on CentOS 8
yum package managers.
Also, we will demonstrate how to uninstall and update

If you are only interested in the installation command, here is a quick answer for you:
or if you use
sudo yum makecache && sudo yum -y install sloccount
sudo dnf makecache && sudo dnf -y install sloccount
But if you are interested in the details with step-by-step instructions, the following information will be helpful.
Short description: programs for counting physical source lines of code (SLOC)
First things first, you will need access to a server or computer running CentOS 8. This guide was written specifically with a server running CentOS 8 in mind, although it should also work on older, supported versions of the operating system.
Also, make sure you are running a regular, non-root user with sudo privileges configured on your server. When you have an account available, log in as your non-root user to begin.
There are several ways to install exp_count on CentOS 8. You can use (links are clickable):
In the following sections, we will describe each method in detail. You can choose one of them or refer to the recommended one.
First, update dnf packages database with
dnf by running the next command:
sudo dnf makecache --refresh
After updating database,
You can install exp_count using
dnf by running the
sudo dnf -y install sloccount
Because exp_count is available in CentOS 8’s default
it is possible to install it from these repositories using the
To begin, update local packages database with
yum using the following command.
sudo yum makecache --refresh
Now can install exp_count package on your server/computer by running the following command:
sudo yum -y install sloccount
To update all the packages available on the system:
If you want to update a specific package like exp_count in this example you should use the following command:
yum update sloccount
To downgrade a package to an earlier version:
yum downgrade sloccount
When you run the
dnf update, all system packages with available updates are updated.
However, if you want to upgrade a single package, then you would have to pass the package name as
the argument to the dnf update command.
dnf update sloccount
To uninstall only the
exp_count package you can execute
sudo dnf remove sloccount
SLOCCount (pronounced "sloc-count") is a suite of programs for counting physical source lines of code (SLOC) in potentially large software systems (thus, SLOCCount is a "software metrics tool" or "software measurement tool"). SLOCCount can count physical SLOC for a wide number of languages; listed alphabetically, they are: Ada, Assembly, awk, Bourne shell, C, C++, C shell, COBOL, C#, Erlang, Expect, Fortran, Java, lex/flex, LISP (including Scheme), Makefile, Modula3, Objective-C, Pascal, Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby, sed, SQL, Tcl, VHDL, XML, Yacc/Bison. SLOCCount can automatically determine if a file is a source code file or not, and if so, which language it's written in. As a result, you can analyze large systems completely automatically. SLOCCount also includes some report-generating tools to collect the data generated and present it in several different formats.
You now have a full guide on how to install
yum package managers.
Also, we showed how to update manually as a single package and different ways to uninstall
the exp_count from CentOS 8.
