|SSTRIP(1)||General Commands Manual||SSTRIP(1)|
sstrip modifies the named file in place, rather than outputting new contents to another location.
- -z, --zeroes
- Attempt to also strip trailing zero bytes from the file.
- Display help and exit.
- Display version information and exit.
A shared-object library stripped in this fashion will still be usable by the dynamic linker, but not by the static linker.
The use of the option to delete trailing zero bytes can sometimes cause a binary to not function (depending on which ELF structure was truncated as a result). Since this feature typically reduces a file size by only a handful of bytes anyway, it is only useful in rare circumstances.
