 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:

                  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.
