Is it possible to measure the length of a curved shape (path) in after effects?

Illustrator has a built-in ability to measure stroke (curve lengths) so it seems like AE should have something similar.

In an expression context, there is no way.
And in scripting, you can access the control points of a shape path, hence you could calculate its curve length, but you would have to implement that function because After Effects does not provide it.
