1. What does LOC stand for?

Lines of code

LOC is an acronym that stands for "lines of code," which is often used by software developers. It refers to the number of lines that make up the source code of a program.

Typically the more LOC there are in the source code, the longer it took for the program to be developed and the larger the size is of the program. If you want to be even more specific about the amount of LOC, you can use KLOC for 1,000 LOC, MLOC for 1,000,000 LOC, and GLOC for 1,000,000,000 LOC.
