STRIP(1) General Commands Manual STRIP(1)
strip - remove symbols and relocation bits from an object file
strip removes the symbol table and relocation bits ordinarily attached
to the output of the assembler and linker. This is useful to save
space after a program has been debugged.
The effect of strip is the same as use of the -s option of ld(1).
Unstripped 2.0 binary files will not run if stripped by the 3.0 ver-
sion. A message of the form:
pid xxx: killed due to swap problems in getxfile: I/O error map-
when attempting to run a program indicates that this is the problem.
