I convinced myself that the ~500kbytes for the
'hello' code is 'correct' in version 6.6.1.
[ The exact size on the platform mentioned below
is 422k. ]
Looks like version 6.8.2 blows up the binary code size
significantly --- 3.9Mbytes vs 0.422Mbytes.
Is this a known issue with 6.8.2 ?
Is it a specific platform dependent issue --- i.e.
does it occur on linux machines ??
