Controlling debug information in output files

Use the --debugonly option to remove the content of any code or data sections. This ensures that the output file contains only the information required for debugging, for example, debug sections, symbol table, and string table. Section headers are retained because they are required to act as targets for symbols.


You must use --elf with this option. Because you have to use --elf, you must also use --output.


To create an ELF file, debugout.axf, from the ELF file infile.axf, containing only debug information, enter:

fromelf --cpu=8-A.64 --elf --debugonly --output=debugout.axf infile.axf
