I'm trying to understand how talk back works.
"Talk Back" is a client/server utility used by the Mozilla Foundatio,
to get stack trace when software released by the Foundation crahes. As
I understand it, software is build with debug symbol, then send to a
server where those symbols are stripped. When the application crashes a
symbol-less stack trace is send to the server which can generate a
stack trace containg symbols.
I'm trying to understand how all this works. I'm looking for pointers
on how the linking process works, what doe it do , how is done. Books,
web page explaining these concept and how they work.
Same thing applies to striping, how does the strip command work ?
