The bindery file is huge (Normally 160KB now 950KB. I presume that smart

GNU ld version 2.15
  Supported emulations:

Dos anyone have a hint what I can do.

I have converted c header files for NanoX (Micro Windows) and written a

conversion, but it is useful. Is this of any interest for the free Pascal
