Hi,

I have Eclipse running with an ARM toolchain using Sourcery Codebench Lite. Until yesterday, when I compiled, it would end up calling arm-none-eabi-size to print out the size of the compiled code. It stopped doing that, and I can't figure out why.

If I run arm-none-eabi-size from a command line, it works. The project's Tool Settings shows ARM Sourcery GNU Print Size and it's configured correctly. The "Additional Tools" under Tool Settings has Print Size checked. Shouldn't that do the trick?

Build Steps does not have anything set for the Post-build steps. I suppose I could put an invocation of arm-none-eabi-size there, but it shouldn't be necessary, should it?

arm-none-eabi-size stopped working for all projects in two different workspaces, so something really fundamental must've broken.

What else can I look for?

Thank you,
Bob

+1 on this issue: for some inexplicable reason, the Eclipse tool chain has stopped making the command line call that "Print Size" check box should invoke. I've looked all over for a setting in Eclipse that might trump the toolchain settings, given "Print Size" is definitely checked. I can tell the call is never made to arm-none-eabi-size.exe because, when I modify the extension "size" to "XXX", there is no failure to find the executable. Same for objcopy!

I'm using:
ARM GNU plugin for Eclipse,
Eclipse Version: Kepler Service Release 1 Build id: 20130919-0819.

On recent update of various Eclipse modules and plugins, this problem went away and printsize started working again.

I can't be sure exactly which update fixed the problem, but my best guess was that on 3/7/14 I updated my pertinent installation to look like this, which is working smoothly:
C/C++ Development Tools 8.3.0.201402142303
C/C++ GDB Hardware Debugging 8.3.0.201402142303
Eclipse Standard/SDK 2.0.2.20140224-0000
Eclox 0.8.0
Embedded Systems Register View (SFR) 0.2.4
EmbSysRegView Data 0.2.4.r160
GNU ARM C/C++ Cross Compiler Support 1.8.1.201402180751
GNU ARM C/C++ Freescale Project Templates 1.2.1.201402180751
GNU ARM C/C++ STM32Fx Project Templates 1.7.2.201402180751
GNU ARM J-Link Debugging Support 1.4.2.201402180751
