strip removes the symbol table and relocation bits ordinarily attached to the output of the assembler and linker. This is useful to save space after a program has been debugged.
The effect of strip is the same as use of the -s option of ld.1
Unstripped 2.0 binary files will not run if stripped by the 3.0 version. A message of the form:
pid xxx: killed due to swap problems in getxfile: I/O error mapping page.
when attempting to run a program indicates that this is the problem.
