By default, executables are created with debugging enabled. This
means that they are created with debugging symbols, i.e., compiled
with the -g option (which is useful for debugging it with gdb), and
compiled using the -DDEBUG compiler flag (which defines the
preprocessor symbol DEBUG during the compilation).
In this way, you may isolate code to be executed only when compiling
with the debug option typically as follows:
/* Code compiled in only when debug=yes */
To compile this tool with debugging disabled, type:
Of course, if you have already compiled your tool with debugging
enabled, you need to do a make clean first to remove the
previous compilation, then type make debug=no to compile
again with debugging disabled.
