How many lines of code can a programmer fix in a day? Thanks

In all honesty, I don't think anyone really knows - when it comes to Y2K remediation. And you have to define 'fix' - do you mean checked, or checked and remediated, or checked and remediated and tested, or checked and remediated and tested and put into use as production code? Sometimes the simple questions are the hardest to give a meaningful answer to. Old Chinese proverb - "Confucious confounded by the question of a simpleton". Errr - not that I am calling you simple here, just pointing out that simple questions often have very hard answers.

Generic IT industry standard:

~100,000 Lines Of Code ( LOC ) per Year OR ~400 LOC per Workday

Y2K Code Tasks: identify; assess; fix; test; and implement.
