Please can you tell me how to measure the speed of a stepper motor using an encoder and also where to attach the encoder so that some person need not hold the machine always in order to measure the speed.The rpm should be displayed automatically by some method.

Why do you need an encoder to measure the speed of a STEPPER motor? You know how many steps it has per revolution, you know how many steps you let it take and how fast you let it take them, and so you know the RPM already.
