       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  obj­
       file in its argument list.  By default, one line of output
       is generated for each object file or  each  module  in  an

       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 --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

           (-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 hex­
           adecimal for -d or -x output, or octal and hexadecimal
           if you're using -o.

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

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

           Display the version number of size.
