.EXE size

The OWL section isn't working, so I'm asking this in the C section.  I have a 523 KB executable along with its C code.  I need to move it into a Windows environment (I'm learning OWL 2.5) but am concerned the result may be too large.  Are my concerns justified?  What can I do?

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "too large". Do you mean too large to fit on a diskette? Too much memory? If you're using Windows, Windows will take care of swapping memory and making room for your executable (up to physical memory and things marked as "fixed", etc.) If you're program is using too much memory, then you will need to redesign it to use less. If you're worried about too much disk space, you can try turning some optimization switches on. Perhaps you can also give more details as to what you're most concerned with.

By result, I meant the FINAL product.
Result = .EXE FILE.
I was worried that my .EXE file would be too large.
If it is 523 KB as a DOS .EXE, what would it be as a Windows32 .EXE?
That WAS my question, but it is no longer important, because I found out Windows32 doesn't limit the size of .EXE files.
I am now curious whether OWL 2.5 is the best possible route.  I use a lot of data, plot graphs, and form a simple animation comprised of single pixels changing colour.

Try use GIF or JPEG images instead BMP one. You can find C-code how to show GIF and JPEG images at http://web.ukonline.co.uk/Members/julian.smart/code.html
