Dear all,

  I would like to ask whether the requirement of swap space of a executable file during execution is proportional to its file size?

Thanks!

could you please be more specific what you want to calculate:
some examples:
  a) amount of memory executable requires in swap (stack)
  b) amount of memory executable allocates in swap (heap)
  c) ratio: (size of executable with/without heap)/(size of swap)
