STRIP(1)                     BSD Reference Manual                     STRIP(1)

NAME
     strip - remove unnecessary information from executable files

SYNOPSIS
     strip [-d] file ...

DESCRIPTION
     The strip utility deletes the relocation information and symbol table
     used by assemblers, loaders and debuggers.  This significantly decreases
     the size of the installed binaries and saves disk space.

     The options are as follows:

     -d      Delete only debugging and empty symbols.

     Strip exits 0 on success and 1 if an error occurred.

SEE ALSO
     cc(1),  ld(1),  stab(5)
