Stripping of Usefile information

Postby Nhorsley » Wed Feb 18, 2004 8:51 am

I have built a device driver which I download to my target with the startup
code. The device driver binary includes use file info - I can see the ascii
if I view the file with an editor. But this information seems to get
stripped when it gets built into the startup image.

QNX recursive makefiles are still a mystery to me so any advice on a way
round this would be appreciated.

Hello,

Make sure you select the option [+raw] in the mkifs-skript.
The raw - option is also needed if you an photon application based
on the applicationbuilder.

http://qnx.com/developers/docs/momentic ... mkifs.html
=>
By default, mkifs strips usage messages, debugging information, and Photon
resources from executable files that you include in the image. Doing this
helps to reduce the size of the image. To keep this information, specify the
+raw attribute.
