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.



−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










                             ‐2‐


−−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.









                             ‐3‐


−v

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