    DJGPP Bloated Executables

    Even when I use the -s parameter a simple hello world executable is 238 kb. What am I doing wrong, how can I make the executable smaller?

    I used:
    gpp -o exec.exe -s source.cc

    -Thanks Much-

    Do you have the debugging info on? It will bloat your program if you do.

    I see your not using allegro. Because it is easy to get 236k with an allegro program, unless you do DLL version, which you can't do with DJGPP.
