Command to list line length of multiple scripts
What command, or rather combination of commands, could be used to count and display the length in lines of all PHP files in a directory, recursively?

Basically I need to look through all directories within my htdocs directory, count the line length of every PHP file in these directories, and spit out the numbers. The ouput from wc is sufficient, but I can't figure out how to run it on every PHP file on my directory tree.

Thanks for any help with this one!

just use a find to erm.. find the list of files and use that input for the varible in a for loop

for i in `find /htdocs *.php`
wc -l $i

just add more stuff to make it useful

Thanks acid_kewpie... I haven't gotten more than a few minutes all day to try this. I had a few issues with the script, it said there was in invalid parameter '-n' to wc but I didn't put one there. *sigh* I just need a few minutes to work with it but thanks for the help :)
