    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.
    
           --info
               Display a list showing all architectures and object formats
               available.
    
           -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
    
           -K symbolname
           --keep-symbol=symbolname
               When stripping symbols, keep symbol symbolname even if it would
               normally be stripped.  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.
    
           -w
           --wildcard
               Permit regular expressions in symbolnames used in other command
               line options.  The question mark (?), asterisk (*), backslash (\)
               and square brackets ([]) operators can be used anywhere in the
               symbol name.  If the first character of the symbol name is the
               exclamation point (!) then the sense of the switch is reversed for
               that symbol.  For example:
    
                         -w -K !foo -K fo*
    
               would cause strip to only keep symbols that start with the letters
               "fo", but to discard the symbol "foo".
    
           -x
           --discard-all
               Remove non-global symbols.
    
           -X
           --discard-locals
               Remove compiler-generated local symbols.  (These usually start with
               L or ..)
    
           --keep-file-symbols
               When stripping a file, perhaps with --strip-debug or
               --strip-unneeded, retain any symbols specifying source file names,
               which would otherwise get stripped.
    
           --only-keep-debug
               Strip a file, removing contents of any sections that would not be
               stripped by --strip-debug and leaving the debugging sections
                   create a file containing the debugging info.
    
               1.<Run "objcopy --strip-debug foo" to create a>
                   stripped executable.
    
               1.<Run "objcopy --add-gnu-debuglink=foo.dbg foo">
                   to add a link to the debugging info into the stripped
                   executable.
    
               Note---the choice of ".dbg" as an extension for the debug info file
               is arbitrary.  Also the "--only-keep-debug" step is optional.  You
               could instead do this:
    
               1.<Link the executable as normal.>
               1.<Copy "foo" to "foo.full">
               1.<Run "strip --strip-debug foo">
               1.<Run "objcopy --add-gnu-debuglink=foo.full foo">
    
               i.e., the file pointed to by the --add-gnu-debuglink can be the
               full executable.  It does not have to be a file created by the
               --only-keep-debug switch.
    
               Note---this switch is only intended for use on fully linked files.
               It does not make sense to use it on object files where the
               debugging information may be incomplete.  Besides the gnu_debuglink
               feature currently only supports the presence of one filename
               containing debugging information, not multiple filenames on a one-
               per-object-file basis.
    
           -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.
    
           @file
               Read command-line options from file.  The options read are inserted
               in place of the original @file option.  If file does not exist, or
               cannot be read, then the option will be treated literally, and not
               removed.
    
               Options in file are separated by whitespace.  A whitespace
               character may be included in an option by surrounding the entire
               option in either single or double quotes.  Any character (including
               a backslash) may be included by prefixing the character to be
               included with a backslash.  The file may itself contain additional
               @file options; any such options will be processed recursively.
