I've been searching for a way to make my mingw executables smaller. I'm
using strip.exe, but it the fact that all my programs contain code that will
never be used annoys me! As you surely know, by default, gcc puts our code
in the executable together with other code from it's libs; some of it is
needed, some of it isn't!
So, after complaining around in the Internet, I discovered the
cc's --function-sections option and the ld's--gc-sections (thanks Nick
Clifton for that). Well, it happens that it doesn't do a damn thing. As I
currently don't have access to gcc running in Linux, I'm not able to know if
theres something wrong with gcc, or if there's something wrong with mingw or
if there's something wrong with me :-)
So, anyone can help me? What's wrong in this picture? Am I doing wrong?
