You all are right it could depend on the debug symbols etc., i've tested the same code with VC++5 and the code only had 47KB (thats sounds better).
Under Borland i haven't found on option to remove them.

Under Borland i use the simple call:
>bcc32 test.cpp

This produce the borland-specific *tds file. (for Turbo Debugger) the object file (apprx 7KB big) and the executable 110KB big.

Replacing cout by printf make the executable smaller in fact

Happy new year, and thanks for help!
