objdump@binary to reveal compiler used+debug build

Solution: objdump –full-contents –section=.comment /usr/home/your.binary

Solution: strings -a /usr/home/your.binary

Note q(strings) is also available for windows as part of cygwin, or as part of the microsoft sysinternals package.

objdump can also reveal telltale signs of debug build, though I couldn’t verify it.
