Abstract
A software metric is a tool that should be used in the development of quality software. The properties that define good software vary but encompass reliability, complexity, efficiency, testability, understandability, and modifiability. The Henry metric measures the complexity of data flow within a module and the complexity of inter-module communication. This thesis is an extension of a previous thesis titled 'AdaMeasure' that calculated the Halstead metric. The present design and implementation is a tool that computes the Halstead and Henry metrics for Ada programs.
