NAME
       size - list section sizes and total size.

SYNOPSIS
       size [-A|-B|--format=compatibility]
	    [--help]
	    [-d|-o|-x|--radix=number]
	    [--common]
	    [-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 --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

       --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.

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

       -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.

       @file
	   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.
