I'm working on a large project where I found Visual C limits 4095/6 sources with
debug information for use in incremental linking. I wanted to remove the debug
information from the .obj files that I did not need to step into, so I wrote a quick program.
This program removes debug information from most .obj files (some cases are
not covered, in which the program will not create obj file and will return an error code), which is quicker (minimaly 5-6 times) than creating two .obj files (note that mixing debug and release .obj's is not good idea).
objstrip.exe input.obj output.obj
- Compiling: you MUST use struct member alignment 1 byte!
- libs: some libs contain not .obj files but .dll's (libraries for
comunication with dll/list of exported functions)
- source: see comments inside source: This program is provided as is with NO guarantee.
It works with VC5 and VC6. Improvements are welcomed. It does not work with 100% of objects
(ignores more complex mixing of data/code and debug information, see source).
It exists for anyone for whom this source is usable. If there is anyone for whom this source is usable then
I would love to hear from you.
