 Compiled Prog Size

        a friend downloaded sed off simtel.
        the downloaded binary                           = 21k

        he compiled it with borland CPP 3.1             = 45 k
        he recompiled it with plain turbo C 2.01        = 21 k

if u compile a 200-byte batch file
using one of many compilers (simtel, again)             = several k
one advantage: u can redirect/pipe the output.

that 2-step method
has some  merit.

Have you ever tried powerbasic DLL (and EXE) 6.0 ?

It is a true BASIC language compiler for the 32 bit Windows platform and it
produces executables smaller than C does and they are lighting fast !

I use it and I love it.
