Or you could just call wc (http://www.computerhope.com/unix/uwc.htm) from the shell, but Idont think you can exclude comments with it.

There is a program called sloccount that does this. It (recursively) searches through your source tree and gives you a report of all the languages used and how many lines of code written in each language.

It is in Universe, so you can just run

sudo apt-get install sloccount
