NAME

size − list section sizes and total size.

SYNOPSIS

size

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

DESCRIPTION

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

−A

−B

−−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 Berkeley’s.

−−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 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’.

−−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 formats.

−V

−−version

Display version number information on size itself.
