I used bcc32 (Borland C++ 5.5.1) command-line compiler to compile a simple "hello world" program, and it's about 70KB. When I used Turbo C++ 3.0 it was a lot smaller. Simple 15-20 line C programs have gone up to 180KB! Why is this?
Is it to do with the compiler itself, the code, or the fact that it's a Windows compiler? How can I produce very small EXE's using C and not assembly language?
Is it possible to compile for DOS with bcc32, or to .COM files?
