       size - list section sizes and total size.


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


       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.


       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 --format=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:

                   $ 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.

           Print total size of common symbols in each file.  When using Berkeley format these are
           included in the bss size.

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

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

           Display the version number of size.

           Read command-line options from file.  The options read are inserted in  place  of  the
           original  @file  option.   If  file does not exist, or cannot be read, then the option
           will be treated literally, and not removed.

           Options in file are separated by whitespace.  A whitespace character may  be  included
           in  an option by surrounding the entire option in either single or double quotes.  Any
           character (including a backslash) may be included by prefixing  the  character  to  be
           included  with a backslash.  The file may itself contain additional @file options; any
           such options will be processed recursively.
