Hi Dave,

-bash-2.05b$ ./size -A tmpdir/bintest.o
tmpdir/bintest.o  :
section       size   addr
$TEXT$           8      0
$CODE$           8      0
$LIT$            0      0
$MILLICODE$      0      0
$PRIVATE$        8      0
$DATA$           8      0
$BSS$            0      0
Total           32

The problem with the total is that we are double counting.  The $CODE$,
$LIT$ and $MILLICODE$ subspace make up the space $TEXT$.  $DATA$ and
$BSS$ make up the space $PRIVATE$.  Here are the details:

Hmm - it seems to me that we must either teach the size program about subspaces as a generic thing, or else have a target specific extension to the program which can display sections and sub-spaces specifically for the SOM format.

Personally I tend towards the latter as it could be contained in a separate file and only minimally intrudce into the generic size sources.
