    removing debugging info with borland c++

    I am using borland c++ commandline tools, I've compiled a simple windows app. EXE generated is 42 kb. I looked at the assembly code generated and I see a lot of debugging stuff so I thought if I remove this it will reduce the size of the executable. How would I do this?

    You usually control that kind of code generation via cmd-line flags.

    However it is weird that it would put in debugging info without you telling it to.

    I've found that I can reduce the executable size by dynamically linking with the C runtime library,cw3250.dll. It is safe to assume that most people have this file?

    No, it isn't, mainly because I don't have it.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah
