Software evolution is an essential characteristic of real world software, as the user requirements changes, software needs to change otherwise it becomes less useful. In order to be used for a longer time period, software needs to evolve. Software evolution can be a result of software maintenance. An effort is made to find the applicability of Lehman Laws on different releases of two software developed in C++ using object-oriented metrics. In this paper, a study has been conducted on 10 versions of graphics layout engine and flight gear simulator evolved over the period of eight years.
