SIZE(1)			     GNU Development Tools		       SIZE(1)

       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	--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 conven-

		   $ 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.
