Arduino: checking memory footprint

I can check the memory footprint using the avr-size command.

% avr-size microcoap.cpp.elf
  text    data    bss    dec    hex filename
     0   18612	    0	 18612	 48b microcoap.cpp.hex

When I enable the avr format (-C) and provide the microcontroller model, the output becomes more descriptive.

% avr-size -C --mcu=atmega328p microcoap.cpp.elf
AVR Memory Usage
Device: atmega328p

Program:   18612 bytes (56.8% Full)
(.text + .data + .bootloader)

Data:       2491 bytes (121.6% Full)
(.data + .bss + .noinit)
