    Baskaran> The caption text is one page; less than a4paper. We use
Baskaran> one style file for copy editing purpose, so the point
Baskaran> size of caption is 14pt/16pt.I find the dimension of
Baskaran> caption, if the width of the caption less than textwidth
Baskaran> then the caption is centered, otherwise the caption is
Baskaran> like a paragraph. So first i find the dimension by

\setbox0=\vbox{<whatever>}

\ifdim\ht0>\fontdimen6\font
\typeout{Box has more than one line}
\else
\typeout{Box has single line}
\fi

This could save you from the \maxdimen tragedy.

Dear Sir,

Thank you very much sir. This logic will help me more.

Regards
