SubjectRe: [RFC] perf tools: Filter out hidden symbols from labels
Date
Hi Guys,

Usually the command line options can also be found in the debug info for
the executable. Assuming it has not been stripped, of course.

One of the advantages of the annobin strategy of using ELF notes is that
these are not stripped from executables...

Unfortunately the annobin notes will probably not be very helpful as they
only record a minor subset of the typical gcc command line options.
(Specifically: -O, -g, -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE, -D_GLIBCXX_ASSERTIONS,
-fcf-protection, -fpic (and variants), -fshort-enum, -fstack-clash-protection,
-fstack-protector, -mstackrealign, -fexceptions).

Sorry - no such library exists.

Exactly - and what a great blog author that person is ... :-)

Cheers
