Linux "size" Command Line Options and Examples
list section sizes and total size.

size [-A|-B|--format=compatibility]
[--target=bfdname] [-V|--version]

Command Line Options:

Using one of these options, you can choose whether the output from GNU size resembles output from System Vsize (using -A, or --format=sysv), or Berkeley size (using -B, or --format=berkeley). The default is theone-line format similar to Berkeley's.Here is an example of the Berkeley (default) format of output from size:$ size --format=Berkeley ranlib sizetext data bss dec hex filename294880 81920 11592 388392 5ed28 ranlib294880 81920 11888 388688 5ee50 sizeThis is the same data, but displayed closer to System V conventions:$ size --format=SysV ranlib sizeranlib :section size addr.text 294880 81920 303104.bss 11592 385024Total 388392size :section size addr.text 294880 81920 303104.bss 11888 385024Total 388688

size --common ...
Show totals of all objects listed (Berkeley format listing mode only).
size --totals ...
Specify that the object-code format for objfile is bfdname. This option may not be necessary; size canautomatically recognize many formats.
size --target ...
Display the version number of size.@fileRead 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 bysurrounding 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 containadditional @file options; any such options will be processed recursively.
