STRIP(1)                                                 STRIP(1)

     NAME
          strip - remove symbols and relocation bits

     SYNOPSIS
          strip [ -s ] [ -g ] [ -v ] name ...

     DESCRIPTION
          Strip removes the symbol table and relocation bits ordinar-
          ily attached to the output of the assembler and loader.
          This is useful to save space after a program has been
          debugged.

          If -s is specified, the symbol table is compressed by remov-
          ing duplicate structure definitions and symbol table
          entries; no information is lost.  If -g is specified, all
          line-number information is deleted, thus inverting the
          effect of `cc -g'; -s compression is performed as well. The
          -v flag prints out size information.  If no flags are given,
          strip removes the symbol table entirely; this is the same as
          use of the -s option of ld(1).
