> although the static lib might be big - if I create a DLL with VC6 this is only ~140kb which is perfectly ok; I guess (not actually tested) that if you link against this static lib then the resulting exe is a good part smaller; probably something about the 140kb which is the size of the DLL + the actual code size.
