- Subject: discard a weak symbol in object file
I tired to remove a local symbol in an .o file by the use of:
arm-elf-objcopy -N <symbol-name> infile.o outfile.o
This works fine as long as the symbol is global (not weak nor local).
Unfortunately objcopy provides just the conversion of symbols into weak or
local, but no option to convert into global.
Has anyone an idea how I can get rid of an unwanted weak symbol in an
object file, or how I can change it to be global and then delete it?
