LOC in DOS

Though LOC for estimation is not very reliable , but still in case you need to find LOC of existing project. One way is to write a piece of code in your preferred language C#/VB.Net etc or another way is using some command like wc -l as in Linux.
In DOS there is no such command directly availiable , so how to go about this one?? I assume nobody is going to write pharse "I am genius" in deployed code.
So the trick is to find nonexisting text[/v] in lines and count those lines [/c]. For this to work copy all the source code files in one directory and run the following
C:\CS> find "I am genius" /c/v *.cs >ABC
Hope it helps
