# C Program to Count the Number of Lines in a File2 min read

In this tutorial, we will write a C Program to find the number of lines in a text file. Before that, you may go through the following C topics.

Explanation: The program asks the user to enter the file name or file path (if not present in the same directory). If the file is not present then it will throw a message else it will continue the counting process.

First, the file checks if the starting is EOF or not, if not then the count will increase to 1 (if this part is not checked then the count will show one less result than the actual number of lines present), and then the counting begins using a while loop. And it increases the count when a newline is found every time inside a file.
