I understand that.

Is the source code available for totext.exe, retab.exe keepower.exe,
and fsum.exe?

If the source code were available, I could try compiling them and see
if I could reproduce the nice, small executable sizes you list above.

When I write "hello world" in C, the executable is 8,519 bytes.  When
I write "hello world" in D, the executable is 100 times larger:
865,179 bytes.

Interestingly, "hello world" in C, compiled statically, yields 908,608
bytes.  And "hello world" in assembly yields 368 bytes.

Thanks,

Parke
