You missed the point.
Of course, the difficulty of the task of a specific function will directly
contribute to the number of lines of code for that function, but that's not
what I was talking about.
What I was talking about was that what we can grasp in one view, we can
understand better. If the code lies outside of our view, then we understand it
less. I can support this claim with numerous articles/books/studies of human
visual limits vs short-term memory. I am only bringing this forward for us to
consider in our writing code. If we know why we do things, then we can better
understand what we do.
That's why I code in 5px font. On my huge monitor I sometimes find the
code is shaped like a tiger, or a dragon, I swear I even saw Piccolo. It
really does help to see the big picture :B
