NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       size - list section sizes and total size.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

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

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

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

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]



       --format compatibility
              Using one of these options, you can choose  whether
              the output from GNU size 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  to

       --help Show a summary of acceptable arguments and options.




       --radix number
              Using one of these options, you can control whether
              the size of each section is given in decimal (`-d',
              or `--radix 10'); octal (`-o', or `--radix 8');  or
              hexadecimal  (`-x',  or `--radix 16').  In `--radix
              number', only the three values (8, 10, 16) are supported.
   The  total  size  is  always given in two
              radices; decimal and hexadecimal for `-d'  or  `-x'
              output,  or  octal  and hexadecimal if you're using

       --target bfdname
              You can specify a particular object-code format for
              objfile  as  bfdname.   This  may not be necessary;
              size  can  automatically  recognize  many  formats.
              See objdump(1) for information on listing available

       -t     Show totals of all objects listed (in Berkeley format
 listing mode only).


              Display  version number information on size itself.
