Last updated on JULY 05, 2017

Applies to:

Precompilers - Version: 11.1.0.7 and later   [Release: 11.1 and later ]

Symptoms

Using Sample1.pc and building a static application results in a significantly larger executable. This is mostly evident on the HP Itanium platform and not so much on the other platforms.

Build command use:

> make -f demo_proc.mk build_static EXE=MyApp OBJS=sample1.o

Static build, 9.2.0.8, 32 bits:
-rwxr-xr-x   1 refresh   refresh     37,811,228 Mar 30 11:40 myApp

Static build, 11.2.0.1, 32 bits:
-rwxr-xr-x   1 refresh   refresh     111,650,584 Mar 30 11:44 myApp
