       strip - strip symbol and line number information from an object file

       filename ...

       removes the symbol table and line number information from object files,
       including archives.  Thereafter, no symbolic debugging access is avail‐
       able  for that file; thus, this command is normally run only on produc‐
       tion modules that have been debugged and tested.	 The effect is	nearly
       identical to using the option of ld.

       The  amount  of	information stripped from the symbol table can be con‐
       trolled by using any of the following options:

	      Strip line number information only;
		      do not strip any symbol table information.

	      Do not strip static or external symbol information.

		      Note that the and options	 are  synonymous  because  the
		      symbol  table contains only static and external symbols.
		      Either option strips only symbolic debugging information
		      and unloadable data.

	      Reset  the  relocation indexes into the symbol table (SOM only).
	      Obsolete for
		      ELF files.  This option allows to be run on  relocatable
		      files,  in  which	 case the effect is also to strip only
		      symbolic debugging information and unloadable data.

	      Print the version of the strip command  on  the  standard	 error

	      Print the usage menu.

       If  there  are any relocation entries in the object file and any symbol
       table information is to be stripped, complains and  terminates  without
       stripping filename unless the option is used.

       If is executed on an archive file (see ar(4)), the archive symbol table
       is removed.  The archive symbol table must  be  restored	 by  executing
       with  its  operator  (see  ar(1)) before the archive can be used by the
       command (se ld(1)).  instructs the user with appropriate	 warning  mes‐
       sages when this situation arises.

       The purpose of this command is to reduce file storage overhead consumed
       by the object file.

   Environment Variables
       The following internationalization variables affect the execution of

       Determines the locale category for native language, local customs and
	      coded character set in the  absence  of  and  other  environment
	      variables.  If is not specified or is set to the empty string, a
	      default of (see lang(5)) is used instead of

       Determines the values for all locale categories and has precedence over
	      and other environment variables.

       Determines the locale that should be used to affect the format
	      and contents of diagnostic messages written to standard error.

       Determines the locale category for numeric formatting.

       Determines the locale category for character handling functions.

       Determines the location of message catalogues for the processing

       If any internationalization variable contains  an  invalid  set‐
       ting,  behaves  as if all internationalization variables are set
       to See environ(5).

       In addition, the following environment variable affects

       Specifies a directory
	      for temporary files (see tmpnam(3S)).

   International Code Set Support
       Single- and multi-byte character code sets are supported.

       name			     is not an appropriate object file.

       name			     contains  relocation  entries  and
				     the   option  was	not  specified.
				     Symbol table information cannot be

       Strip symbol table and debug information from the shared library
       in the current directory to reduce its size.  Symbol information
       required to use the library is preserved:
