What did you do?

strings a go executable

What did you expect to see?

no directory information

What did you see instead?

my directory information

I was trying to make a release of a go project, and I strings the executable, and I found that my directory information was stored inside. Even though I stripped debugging information.

Example :

/home/kittytechno/go_projects/src/github.com/mitchellh/go-ps/process_windows.go
and their is much more information after. This is a little scary that someone can just strings the executable and get information on my directories.

Is there a way to remove that directory information?

Is there a way to remove that directory information?

Yes, call go build with the -trimpath flag. Closing here since we don't really use the issue tracker for questions. It's just for Go bugs.
