Next I ran your code and it seems to work OK for giving you the line count. What problem are you experiencing? Are you reading in a file with unix style line breaks instead of windows? Please elaborate on what is not working.

its not give my any count i read in window style.
plise tell my your working combination on my code.

paste example code

thanks

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var result:Integer;
    s:string;            {!}
function linecount(filename: string): integer;
 var f: textfile;
begin
  assignfile(f,filename);
  reset(f);
  result:= 0;
  while not eof(f) do begin
    readln(f);
    inc(result);
  end;
  closefile(f);
  linecount:=result;   {!}
end;
