Step 3b: Determine the count resulting from EIF's

In this particular application there are no EIFs, so EIFs contribute zero FPs to the overall FP count.

However, in many applications there definitely are EIFs. Suppose, for example, that this application required the use of a file named Users, and this file was maintained by another application, but was accessed by our application. In this case the file would be counted as an EIF, using the EIF rules discussed earlier.

At this point we've finished counting data functions, and it's time to move on to transaction functions.
