    Strip symbols from win32 binaries?


    is that possible like in linux with the "strip" command for example?

    Background is, I don't want any symbols visible inside an exe.

    Thanks in advance!

    If you use MS VC just NOT specifying any debug symbol format will produce an executable without symbol information (aside obviously from DLL imports and/or exports).

    If you have gcc-mingw or similar, it comes with a strip.exe that removes symbols from the executable (presumably, at least).

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.
