Question:

 

Usually there is a linker switch to get total code and data size. I am unable to find it in the case of Blackfin linker. I could calculate this from map file, in example by a python script. Is this kind of script done already done?

 

========================

 

Answer:

 

MAP file is the easiest way to get the size information.

 

The ELFDUMP command-line utility may prove useful. You can confirm the "real" size of your DXE application using the ELFDUMP command-line utility:
ELDUMP filename.dxe

 

This will report the sizes of the various sections in your program. These sizes should match those reported in the MAP file.
