SIZE(1)                      GNU Development Tools                     SIZE(1)




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 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

       The command line options have the following meanings:

       -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  --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:

                   $ 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 conven-
           tions:

                   $ 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
           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.

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

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

       -V
       --version
           Display the version number of size.
