STRIP(1)                    General Commands Manual                   STRIP(1)



NAME
       strip - remove symbols and relocation bits from an object file

SYNOPSIS
       strip filename...

DESCRIPTION
       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).

SEE ALSO
       ld(1), a.out(5)

BUGS
       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-
              ping page.

       when attempting to run a program indicates that this is the problem.
