How do you measure (in mm) the length of an arc?

I have completed a drawing on AutoCAD LT 2005 and cannot fathom out how to take a measurement of the arc - can anyone help?

I also need to segment the object into 5 equal sections ie a wall - how can I do this?

DIMARC is a feature of LT2006 and higher:

Search around here for a macro for lower versions of LT that kind-of-worked
for many of us before that, if upgrading is not an option.

For any Pro-Users reading this, check our the tip on that page for

Can you turn that arc into a polyline and then List it?

Heck I just noticed that highlighting the arc and looking at its properties tells me the arc length, without turning it into a polyline...

...also, look into the Divide command for adding evenly spaced points to a line or arc...
