Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 9527
quickstrip thinks all binaries are already stripped
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:12:37 EDT
quickstrip reported that a binary was already stripped, when strip reported
a compression from 195000 bytes to 17000 bytes.
quickstrip is not for ELF files, so it will not produce
valid results for those.
The man page says it works on normal alpha executables as well. Hence it should
work on a simple hello world program.
