       dh_strip - strip executables, shared libraries, and some static

       dh_strip [debhelper options] [-Xitem] [--dbg-package=package]

       dh_strip is a debhelper program that is responsible for stripping exe
       cutables, shared libraries, and static libraries that are not used for

       This program examines your package build directories and works out what
       to strip on its own. It uses file(1) and file permissions and filenames
       to figure out what files are shared libraries (*.so), executable bina
       ries, and static (lib*.a) and debugging libraries (lib*_g.a,
       debug/*.so), and strips each as much as is possible. (Which is not at
       all for debugging libraries.) In general it seems to make very good
       guesses, and will do the right thing in almost all cases.

       Since it is very hard to automatically guess if a file is a module, and
       hard to determine how to strip a module, dh_strip does not currently
       deal with stripping binary modules such as .o files.

       -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.

	   Causes dh_strip to save debug symbols stripped from the packages it
	   acts on as independent files in the package build directory of the
	   specified debugging package.

	   For example, if your packages are lifoo and foo and you want to
	   include a foo-dbg package with debugging symbols, use dh_strip

	   Note that this option behaves significantly different in debhelper
	   compatibility levels 4 and below. Instead of specifying the name of
	   a debug package to put symbols in, it specifies a package (or pack
	   ages) which should have separated debug symbols, and the separated
	   symbols are placed in packages with "-dbg" added to their name.

       -k, --keep-debug
	   Debug symbols will be retained, but split into an independent file
	   in usr/lib/debug/ in the package build directory. --dbg-package is
	   easier to use than this option, but this option is more flexible.

       If the DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS environment variable contains "nostrip", noth
       ing will be stripped, in accordance with Debian policy.

       This program is a part of debhelper.
