Best answer

There is a way to determine the size of a function. The command is:

nm -S "object_file_name"

This will return the sizes of each function inside the object file. Consult the manual pages in the GNU using 'man nm' to gather more information on this.

Hi Aarti,
Is there a way to achieve the same using programming?(Not through command line). Maybe with the help of some dummy function logic or subtracting the addresses of 2 functions?
