I'd still like to know why a simple printf("Hello world\n"); when compiled
with cc -n on my Sun produces a 94K program! No wonder they had to
implement dynamic linking! And that 94K includes over 40K code AND over
40K data! Does anyone have any idea what it is all for?
For comparison, the same program produces an executable file size of 7K
from our 386 compiler. Still rather a lot, but a hell of a lot less than 94K!
