Strip (Unix)

Strip (Unix)

In Unix and Unix-like operating systems, the strip program removes all debugging and symbol information from executable binary programs and object files, thus potentially resulting in better performance and sometimes significantly less disk space usage.

It is part of the GNU Binary Utilities (binutils), and has been ported to other operating systems including Microsoft Windows.

Example

$ strip foobar
