Subject: No stripping of symbols on Win32
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 457b
It's hardly a bug, but adding the "-s" switch on Win32 (gcc compiler) reduces the size of blib from about 45 mb to approx 12 mb. On my linux box the size of the blib was only about 8 mb anyway - so it's likely this applies only to Win32. To reduce the size of the dll's, in Build.PL's sub link_c(), immediately beneath the line of code that assigns values to @ld, I inserted: push @ld, "-s" if ($^O =~ /MSWin32/i && $Config{cc} eq 'gcc'); Cheers, Rob
This has been fixed as of 0.12.
