I took java to make the find command simpler and to state that it works for any language supported by cpp.
cpp is the C/C++ preprocessor (interprets macros, removes comments, inserts includes, resolves trigraphs). The -fpreprocessor option tells cpp to assume the input has already been preprocessed so it will only replace comment lines with blank lines.
The -L 1 option tells xargs to launch one process for each line, indeed cpp can only process one file at the time...
There are 3 alternatives - vote for the best!
Counts number of lines of code in *.h and *.cc files
