NAME

size - list section sizes and total size. 

SYNOPSIS

size [-A|-B|--format=compatibility]
     [--help]
     [-d|-o|-x|--radix=number]
     [-t|--totals]
     [--target=bfdname] [-V|--version]  
     [objfile...] 

DESCRIPTION

The GNU size utility lists the section sizes---and the totalsize---for each of the object or archive files objfile in itsargument list. By default, one line of output is generated for eachobject file or each module in an archive.

objfile... are the object files to be examined.If none are specified, the file "a.out" will be used. 

OPTIONS

The command line options have the following meanings:
-A
-B
--format=compatibility
Using one of these options, you can choose whether the output from GNUsize resembles output from System V size (using -A,or --format=sysv), or Berkeley size (using -B, or--format=berkeley). The default is the one-line format similar toBerkeley's.

Here is an example of the Berkeley (default) format of output fromsize:

        $ size --format=Berkeley ranlib size        text    data    bss     dec     hex     filename        294880  81920   11592   388392  5ed28   ranlib        294880  81920   11888   388688  5ee50   size
This is the same data, but displayed closer to System V conventions:

        $ size --format=SysV ranlib size        ranlib  :        section         size         addr        .text         294880         8192               .data          81920       303104               .bss           11592       385024               Total         388392
        size  :        section         size         addr        .text         294880         8192               .data          81920       303104               .bss           11888       385024               Total         388688
--help
Show a summary of acceptable arguments and options.
-d
-o
-x
--radix=number
Using one of these options, you can control whether the size of eachsection is given in decimal (-d, or --radix=10); octal(-o, or --radix=8); or hexadecimal (-x, or--radix=16). In --radix=number, only the threevalues (8, 10, 16) are supported. The total size is always given in tworadices; decimal and hexadecimal for -d or -x output, oroctal and hexadecimal if you're using -o.
-t
--totals
Show totals of all objects listed (Berkeley format listing mode only).
--target=bfdname
Specify that the object-code format for objfile isbfdname. This option may not be necessary; size canautomatically recognize many formats.
-V
--version
Display the version number of size.
