Is there a way to improve "deadcode removal" = the way the linker
removes unreferenced functions, in order to have smaller executables ?
I noticed gcc is very bad with this operation. Should I help him by
preprocessing, or is there any hints to perform a good cleaning ? we
suppose we don't "play" with functions pointers thanks for help khoury
