Thanks, I'll try it.

I want to use it this way:
1) Gel all @unitname.function addresses.
2) Use disassembler to find nearest next RET.
3) Then I assume that I have start and end of the function in the binary 

It works at least for the concept-showing app with some functions and 
enabled optimizations when compiling. Do I have some conceptual flaw?
And maybe there is an easier way to get function RET addresses in the 
binary file?
