 PERL vs. C/C++ code size factor


I'm looking for some info on software metrics.
We make products consisting of PERL code, and we would like to
compare fault density and productivity with other products, coded
in C or C++.

Can you give me a conversion factor for that, with a solid
foundation? Estimates by our designers on efficiency of PERL vs.
C code were between 2.7 and 7.

I have heard of the FunctionPointAnalysis method, and I know that
they use conversion factors. So any pointer to related information
would also be very welcome.

Thanks a lot for your help,


NB. Please reply by e-mail, I don't have the time to read the
news regularly! Thanks again.
