NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       size - list section sizes and total size.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       size [-A|-B|--format=compatibility]
	    [--target=bfdname] [-V|--version]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

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

       The command line options have the following meanings:

	   Using  one of these options, you can choose whether the output from
	   GNU size resembles output from System V size (using -A,  or	--for-
	   mat=sysv),  or Berkeley size (using -B, or --format=berkeley).  The
	   default is the one-line format similar to Berkeley's.

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

		   $ 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

	   Show a summary of acceptable arguments and options.

	   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 -o.

	   Show  totals  of  all  objects listed (Berkeley format listing mode

	   Specify that the object-code format for objfile is  bfdname.   This
	   option  may not be necessary; size can automatically recognize many

	   Display the version number of size.
