Compile your program with -Xs switch and/or try also -XX
Program with CRT should have about 40k not 400k

Dunno about IDE, I'm not using it :)

My first question is, why are FPC Win32 executables so large, even after
running stripw.exe on them? A simple program that has nothing but the CRT
unit declared and does nothing more than clear the screen and write "Hello"
is a 400K executable. Smart linking doesn't seem to do much to cure it, and
stripw.exe only trims it down to about 150K. That seems a bit outrageous to
me, but that's just my opinion, I guess.

My second question is, why doesn't the IDE run the program when CTRL-F9 is
pressed? It just immediately returns without running the program and gives
me a message about the program exiting with some bogus error level value
that I certainly haven't defined in my simple clrscr;writeln('Hello'); test
