dh_dwz - optimize DWARF debug information in ELF binaries via dwz
: This tool is experimental and may disappear or change behaviour
without any notice.
is a debhelper program that will optimize the (uncompressed) size
of the DWARF debug information in ELF binaries. It does so by running
(1) on all the ELF binaries in the package.
- -Xitem, --exclude=item
- Exclude files that contain item anywhere in their
filename from being stripped. You may use this option multiple times to
build up a list of things to exclude.
- -- params
- Pass params to dwz(1) when it processes ELF
binaries. This is mostly useful for setting memory related parameters
(e.g. -l and -L).
If the DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS
environment variable contains nostrip
nothing will be stripped, in accordance with Debian policy (section 10.1
While this tool technically does not remove debug information from binaries, it
is still skipped when the DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS
. This is because nostrip
is often used to
optimize build times (e.g. for "build and test"-cycles) rather than
optimizing for size.
This program is a part of debhelper.
