I need to remove the debugging symbols from the IPA file.
I enabled the
Strip native debugging symbols under
Project Options -> iOS Build.
I used the nm command to check and still I am getting symbol information from the iPA file.
Also tried adding
--dsym=false in the Additional mtouch Arguments but I am unable to archive the file and getting the following error
/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild/Xamarin/iOS/Xamarin.iOS.Common.targets(1005,3): error MSB3375: The file "bin/iPhone/Release/AppName.iOS.app.dSYM/Contents/Info.plist" does not exist.
I tried the same by creating a native project in XCode and stripped the debug symbols using the following configuration
Deployment Post processing -> YES
Strip Linked Product -> YES
Strip Debug Symbols During Copy -> YES
Generate Debug Symbols -> NO
Debug Information Format -> DWARF
After archiving the XCode project, I used the nm command and I am not getting any symbol information.
Is there any other configuration in visual studio for mac to perform this?
