[REBOL] Re: Size of Rebol binary?

Maybe it is compressed (actually I don't think so - it doesn't look like a compressed binary), but God, not with a remarkable ratio!!! I pushed the Win View 1.2 binary with UPX (EXE on-the-fly compressor; thus the resulting EXE stays _really_ executable!) from 500K to almost 300K ! ... now my REBOL applications' setup IS tiny :-)) -- Best regards, Geza mailto:[geza67--freestart--hu]
