Hi,

What is the easiest way to find the total number of lines in a text file?
I know we can create a LineNumberReader and count it line by line.

Thnaks,
Mike


Thanks,<br />Mike

I don't think that the number of lines in a text file is stated explicitly (like for example the file's size). You would have to calculate it manually. Yes that means counting them one by one.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
