STRIP(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		      STRIP(1)

NAME
     strip -- remove unnecessary information from executable files

SYNOPSIS
     strip [-d]	[-x] 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.

     -x	     Delete only debugging, compiler identification, and local sym-
	     bols.

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

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

HISTORY
     A strip command appeared in Version 6 AT&T	UNIX.

FreeBSD	11.1			 June 6, 1993			  FreeBSD 11.1
