Use the “-g0” flag when running the aoc compile to prevent the debug information and source code being embedded in the .aocx file
Example: aoc -g0 <kernelFileName.cl>
To manually remove the source code from .aocx files after building with default options:
1. Run the aocl binedit <.aocx file> list command and find all sections that start with ".acl.source" or ".acl.clang_ir".
2. Run the aocl binedit <.aocx file> update <section> <null> command for every section identified in Step 1.
- For Windows, <null> is nul
- For Linux, <null> is /dev/null
To remove the source code automatically using the Intel-provided Perl script:
1. Download the strip_source Perl script.
2. Unzip the strip_source.zip file in the current working directory and then run the perl strip_source.pl <.aocx file> command.
Note: To run the script on Windows, you must have Perl available on the command line. Ensure that you add the path to Perl to the PATH user environment variable setting.
This problem is scheduled to be fixed in a future release of the Intel FPGA SDK for OpenCL offline compiler.
