.Sh NAME
.Nm crunchide
.Nd hides symbol names from ld, for crunching programs together
.Sh SYNOPSIS
.Nm crunchide
.Op Fl f Ar keep-list-file
.Op Fl k Ar keep-symbol
.Op Ar object-file ...
.Sh DESCRIPTION

.Nm Crunchide
hides the global symbols of
.Ar object-file
such that they are ignored by subsequent runs of the linker, 
.Xr ld 1 .
Some symbols may be left visible via the
.Fl k Ar keep-symbol
and 
.Fl f Ar keep-list-file
options.  The
.Ar keep-list-file
must contain a list of symbols to keep visible, one symbol per line.
Note that the C compiler prepends an underscore in front of
symbols, so to keep the C function ``foo'' visible, the option
\&``-k _foo'' must be used.

.Pp
.Nm Crunchide
is designed as a companion program for 
.Xr crunchgen 1 ,
which automates the process of creating crunched binaries from
multiple component programs.
.Sh SEE ALSO
.Xr crunchgen 1 ,
.Xr ld 1
