compile the source code and then run the nm command on the object file...
Did you mean to get list of functions defined in a file through command line.. Can you please put more light on question..?
@Aarti: Say my file has 10 functions declaration and definition and want to get the list of those. What would be the best way.

Yeah.. as Salil sir answered , we can find it out by using nm command.
nm "object file name"
If we are not giving file name,by default it will take a.out.

This command will generate a symbol table.
And function names are preceding by "T" in that symbol table.
As "T" The symbol is in the text (code) section.
