General Development "I cannot help but speculate on how the software on the Curiosity rover has been constructed. We know that most of the code is written in C and that it comprises 2.5 Megalines of code, roughly. One may wonder why it is possible to write such a complex system and have it work. This is the Erlang programmers view."

On the other hand: Megalines? Really? That's not geeky, that's stupid. What comes next, hectolines?


Should be mebisloc.

Megalines is ambiguous as to whether it's a large number of lines, or just a number of huge lines.
