DESCRIPTION
       GNU strip discards all symbols from object files objfile.  The list of
       object files may include archives.  At least one object file must be
       given.

       strip modifies the files named in its argument, rather than writing
       modified copies under different names.

OPTIONS
       -F bfdname
       --target=bfdname
           Treat the original objfile as a file with the object code format
           bfdname, and rewrite it in the same format.

       --help
           Show a summary of the options to strip and exit.

       -I bfdname
       --input-target=bfdname
           Treat the original objfile as a file with the object code format
           bfdname.

       -O bfdname
       --output-target=bfdname
           Replace objfile with a file in the output format bfdname.

       -R sectionname
       --remove-section=sectionname
           Remove any section named sectionname from the output file.  This
           option may be given more than once.  Note that using this option
           inappropriately may make the output file unusable.

       -s
       --strip-all
           Remove all symbols.

       -g
       -S
       -d
       --strip-debug
           Remove debugging symbols only.

       --strip-unneeded
           Remove all symbols that are not needed for relocation processing.

       -K symbolname
       --keep-symbol=symbolname
           Keep only symbol symbolname from the source file.  This option may
           be given more than once.

       -N symbolname
       --strip-symbol=symbolname
           Remove symbol symbolname from the source file. This option may be
           given more than once, and may be combined with strip options other
           than -K.

       -o file
           Put the stripped output in file, rather than replacing the existing
           file.  When this argument is used, only one objfile argument may be
           specified.

       -p
       --preserve-dates
           Preserve the access and modification dates of the file.

       -x
       --discard-all
           Remove non-global symbols.

       -X
       --discard-locals
           Remove compiler-generated local symbols.  (These usually start with
           L or ..)

       -V
       --version
           Show the version number for strip.

       -v
       --verbose
           Verbose output: list all object files modified.  In the case of
           archives, strip -v lists all members of the archive.
