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.
