RE: Huge executables when compiling in Windows

Hi,
I noticed that as well. Could it be the included libraries and/or something
else?
Cheers,
Joseph

Subject: Huge executables when compiling in Windows

Hi all:

I've noticed that executables are huge in Windows compared to Linux.
My hello World program is 27K when compiled in Windows and 6.2K in Linux.
This is C code and when I compile C++ the difference is even greater.
About 488K in Windows and 7K in Linux for Hello World!!

On Windows I compile with GCC 4.5.0 and on Linux it's GCC 4.3.2.

Why?
I'm just curious!
