LLVM-Strip Introduced As An Alternative To GNU Strip

Written by Michael Larabel in LLVM on 7 May 2018 at 06:09 PM EDT. 8 Comments
LLVM-Strip is the newest tool added to mainline LLVM.

LLVM-Strip is intended as a drop-in replacement to the GNU/Binutils' strip command. That utility is for discarding symbols within an object file.

For now the newly added llvm-strip is quite basic but is being developed as a drop-in replacement and will be extended over time for matching the Binutils strip functionality.
