The paper investigates the use of two of the most popular software complexity measurement theories, the Halstead's Software Science metrics and McCabe's cyclomatic complexity, to analyze basic characteristics of multitasking systems implemented in the programming language C. Additional extensions of both systems of metrics are proposed to increase the level of obtained information connected with the typical characteristics of multitasking systems.
