[Openmcl-devel] Sudden increment in executable image size.

Hey all,

on Windows, 32 bit CCL saves an image that is about 40 megabytes 
(which is quite a bit larger than on Linux).

I've been making some tweaks to a program, and suddenly, the 
executable size nearly doubled, jumping to 78 megs!  It compresses to 
the same size as before, though, under LZMA. (Sorry, I haven't done the 
detailed investigation to isolate what change might have triggered 

Are there any tips on managing the executable size?

Is this just a dump of virtual memory that potentially includes lots 
of sparse regions?

Maybe during build time (loading the fasl's), I tripped some memory 
management threshold, causing some new virtual memory area to be added 
to the image?

Cheers ...
