comment What are stripped and not-stripped executables in Unix?
@ysap no, it has nothing to do with optimizing (-O). The assembly code stays the same whether or not the file is stripped. You get an executable without the debugging info (so you're right about the loss of "-g") and without all symbols (that is, function names, global variable names...). It is the equivalent of "gcc -s -o prog.e prog.c". When a program is executed, symbols do not make any difference. But for example proprietary software always have symbols stripped because otherwise everyone could know the original names of functions and their locations.
