-strip doesn’t know what this file is but read elf and objdump recognize it read elf gives entry and all the headers. I’m trying to find main() or the start function. Can I strip the file? Do I need to? Using ghidra as well and searching for it reveals nothing so maybe it’s hidden? Entry is 0x0

    Why do you think you need to strip it to analyze? Stripping actually removes information that could make it easier!
