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.
