11.60 --info=topic[,topic,…]

Prints information about specific topics. You can write the output to a text file using --list=file.

Syntax

--info=topic[,topic,…]

Where topic is a comma-separated list from the following topic keywords:

any

For unassigned sections that are placed using the .ANY module selector, lists:

  • The sort order.
  • The placement algorithm.
  • The sections that are assigned to each execution region in the order that the placement algorithm assigns them.
  • Information about the contingency space and policy that is used for each region.

This keyword also displays additional information when you use the execution region attribute ANY_SIZE in a scatter file.

architecture
Summarizes the image architecture by listing the processor, FPU, and byte order.
common
Lists all common sections that are eliminated from the image. Using this option implies --info=common,totals.
compression
Gives extra information about the RW compression process.
debug
Lists all rejected input debug sections that are eliminated from the image as a result of using --remove. Using this option implies --info=debug,totals.
exceptions
Gives information on exception table generation and optimization.
inline
If you also specify --inline, lists all functions that the linker inlines, and the total number inlined.
inputs
Lists the input symbols, objects, and libraries.
libraries

Lists the full path name of every library the link stage automatically selects.

You can use this option with --info_lib_prefix to display information about a specific library.

merge
Lists the const strings that the linker merges. Each item lists the merged result, the strings being merged, and the associated object files.
pltgot
Lists the PLT entries that are built for the executable or DLL.
sizes
Lists the code and data (RO Data, RW Data, ZI Data, and Debug Data) sizes for each input object and library member in the image. Using this option implies --info=sizes,totals.
stack
Lists the stack usage of all functions.
summarysizes
Summarizes the code and data sizes of the image.
summarystack
Summarizes the stack usage of all global symbols.
tailreorder
Lists all the tail calling sections that are moved above their targets, as a result of using --tailreorder.
totals
Lists the totals of the code and data (RO Data, RW Data, ZI Data, and Debug Data) sizes for input objects and libraries.
unused
Lists all unused sections that are eliminated from the user code as a result of using --remove. It does not list any unused sections that are loaded from the Arm® C libraries.
unusedsymbols
Lists all symbols that unused section elimination removes.
veneers
Lists the linker-generated veneers.
veneercallers
Lists the linker-generated veneers with additional information about the callers to each veneer. Use with --verbose to list each call individually.
veneerpools
Displays information on how the linker has placed veneer pools.
visibility
Lists the symbol visibility information. You can use this option with either --info=inputs or --verbose to enhance the output.
weakrefs
Lists all symbols that are the target of weak references, and whether they were defined.

Usage

The output from --info=sizes,totals always includes the padding values in the totals for input objects and libraries.

If you are using RW data compression (the default), or if you have specified a compressor using the --datacompressor=id option, the output from --info=sizes,totals includes an entry under Grand Totals to reflect the true size of the image.

Note:

Spaces are not permitted between topic keywords in the list. For example, you can enter --info=sizes,totals but not --info=sizes, totals.
