    Examine size of code/data in the exe

    Is there an utility that would tell me exactly what is the size of the code within some exe. I have this Win app that is 9 MB in size, but I would like to know how much of it goes to code, global data, strings, resources, etc. The application is created with an ancient compiler/linker that does not provide such information so I need something else.

    If you understand what you're doing, you're not learning anything.

    At the moment I don't have VS on my computer (Mac Book Air + XP in VirtualBox), plus a nice note from Microsoft about Safari/Mac on the page you linked. I don't have A/V software in XP so I'm not using the web from there.
