crunchide -- hides symbol names from ld, for crunching programs together SYNOPSIS
crunchide [-f keep-list-file] [-k keep-symbol] object-file [object-file ...] DESCRIPTION
crunchide hides the global symbols of object-file such that they are ignored by subsequent runs of the linker, ld(1). Some symbols may be left visible via the -k keep-symbol and -f keep-list-file options. The keep-list-file must contain a list of symbols to keep visible, one symbol per line. The names given by keep-symbol or in keep-list-file should be C names. For example, to keep the C function ``foo'' visi- ble, the option ``-k foo'' should be used. crunchide is designed as a companion program for crunchgen(1), which automates the process of creating crunched binaries from multiple compo- nent programs.

anm - print name list SYNOPSIS
anm [-gnoprus] file ... OPTIONS
-g Global symbols only -n Sort numerically -o Prepend the filename to each line -p No sorting--use symbol table order -r Sort in reverse order -u List undefined symbols only -s Sort in section order EXAMPLES
anm -gn test.o # Print global symbols in numerical order DESCRIPTION
Anm prints the name list (symbol table) of each ACK format object file in the argument list. If no file name is given, a.out is used. Each symbol name is preceded by its value, a section indicator and a type indicator. The section indicators are: U Undefined symbol A Absolute symbol - Other symbol The type indicators are: F Filename M Module name S Section name E External (global) symbol - Local symbol The output is sorted alphabetically, unless otherwise specified. Notice that anm can only be used on ACK format object files (that is: .o and .out files). If you want to get the name list of an executable program use nm instead. SEE ALSO
