Will some info lost if I use compress linker option with debugging info?

Latest Updated:09/18/2015


Is any information lost if I use the –compress linker option to compress the debugging information?


No information for use in debugging will be lost. Compressing shortens the loading time for the debugger and reduces file sizes while retaining the information needed for debugging.

Note, Linkage time and the memory usage during linkage can be increased relative to when the –nocompress option is specified.
