Large Object Files
Posted on 2006-06-27
I have a library that I build using MSVC++ 6.0. It contains a lot of classes, but most of them are very small. When I build even the small classes, I get object files that are over 800KB in size! My library ends up being 131MB (and that is for the Release library). Most of these small classes subclass another class that is 165KB in size which subclasses yet another class 5kb in size. I tried to build for mimum size and it really doesn't help much. Does it seem reasonable that my .obj files would be so large.
Thanks in advance for any help.
