bloat-blame [options] binary
bloat-blame is a tool for working out how many bytes each line of source code
takes up in a C++ program. It uses
readelf to parse debug
--extent [all|.text]: Specifies which bytes within the binary should be analysed
bloat-blame depends on:
Build your program/library with debug info turned on:
$ CFLAGS='-g' make
Run bloat-blame on the resulting binary:
$ bloat-blame ./myprog
bloat-blame will output something like:
22 src/main.c:22 213 src/main.c:23 7653 src/bloat.c:324
This is a list in ascending order of size. The first column is the number of bytes apportioned to the file/line in the second column.
