display object file segment sizes
(text, data and bss)
size displays the text, data and bss
segment sizes of the specified file(s) in bytes (in
decimal), and the sum of the three segments (in decimal and hexadecimal). If
a library (archive) is given,
size displays the
segment sizes for each object archive member. If no
file is specified,
attempts to report on the file a.out.
The options are as follows:
- At the end of the output print a total of the sizes of all the object files processed.
- Warn about non-object archive members. Normally,
sizewill silently ignore all archive members which are not object files.
