If you choose in the Document Info Panel, Objects it will give you the length of a path.

If you direct select a segment of a path, copy and paste it you will see the length of the segment (which you can delete.

If you copy a curved line segment it will give you the lenght of the curved segment.

If you draw a line between anchor points it will give you the distance between these anchor points.

I wish the Document Info panel also listed the physical area of the object. One of Astute Graphics' plugins will do that, but it only does so for one selected object at a time. It won't provide physical area or path length for a group of objects.
