search-dir symbols on linux

For command line

-search-dir  sym:

-search-dir bin:

On linux, since the symbolic info is in the object files, sym and bin searches are the same path, correct?  I would guess sym is only useful on Windows where the PDB sybolic info files are separate from the object files, correct?

or do I misunderstand:  is 'bin' for the executable and 'sym' for the object files?  Or does 'bin' mean executable, shared objects, .o object files?

I guess the question is "on linux, what does bin include and what does sym include"?

well I guess there is are new dwarf options to split out symbolic info from the object files, but not many folks are using that currently.

The options have the same functionality on Linux* as they do on Windows*.  We try to keep the command line options the same across operating systems.
