I assume linage means the number of lines.

You can use the Tstringlist class to good effect.
Do the following:

function getnolines(filename: string): integer;
var
  Mylist: TStringList;
begin
  MyList := TStringList.Create;
  MyList.LoadFromFile(filename);
  Result := MyList.Count;
  MyList.Free;
end;

This piece of code is enough. This is one of the simplest way to work with text files.

it's better than count the linage one by one
