The linker provides options for getting information about the files it generates.

You can use following options to get information about how your file is generated by the linker, and about the properties of the files:
--info
Displays information about various topics.
--map
Displays the image memory map, and contains the address and the size of each load region, execution region, and input section in the image, including linker-generated input sections. It also shows how RW data compression is applied.
--show_cmdline
Outputs the command-line used by the linker.
--symbols
Displays a list of each local and global symbol used in the link step, and its value.
--verbose
Displays detailed information about the link operation, including the objects that are included and the libraries that contain them.
--xref
Displays a list of all cross-references between input sections.
--xrefdbg
Displays a list of all cross-references between input debug sections.
The information can be written to a file using the --list=filename option.
