Dear developers

I am compiling ipdf.
I did not finish yet.
But when I compile it, file size was big.
How can I reduce it?

Thanks.

arm-linux-strip

is the command you're looking for. It strips out debugging and other symbols which will often reduce the executable's size. I don't think it helps with the resident memory size while running, as the linux loader is smart enough to not load unneeded symbols.

You can also do a 'arm-linux-strip -g' on the library files to decreaese their size.

hope that helps!

10-day-old sons take precedence any day! But, if your 10-day-old is like my eldest, you're probably coming to MR for that little touch of *sanity* in an otherwise chaotic household.

Congratulations!
