Test RealTime - User Guide
A function's cyclomatic complexity should not exceed 10.
The Metrics Viewer presents V(g) of a function in the Metrics tab when the
corresponding tree node is selected.
When the type of the selected node is a source file or a class, the sum of the V(g) of
the contained function, the mean, the maximum and the standard deviation are
calculated.
At the Root level, the same statistical treatment is provided for every function in any
