     NM(1)                                                       NM(1)

          nm - print name list

          nm [ -agnopru ] [ file ... ]

          Nm prints the name list (symbol table) of each object file
          in the argument list.  If an argument is an archive, a list-
          ing for each object file in the archive will be produced.
          If no file is given, the symbols in `a.out' are listed.

          Each symbol name is preceded by its value (blanks if unde-
          fined) and one of the letters U (undefined), A (absolute), T
          (text segment symbol), D (data segment symbol), B (bss seg-
          ment symbol), C (common symbol), f file name, or - for sdb
          symbol table entries (see -a below).  If the symbol is local
          (non-external) the type letter is in lower case.  The output
          is sorted alphabetically.

          Options are:

          -a   Include all symbols in candidates for printing; nor-
               mally symbols destined for sdb(1) are excluded.

          -g   Print only global (external) symbols.

          -n   Sort numerically rather than alphabetically.

          -o   Prepend file or archive element name to each output
               line rather than only once.

          -p   Don't sort; print in symbol-table order.

          -r   Sort in reverse order.

          -u   Print only undefined symbols.
