Subject: [Caml-list] Executable size?
How does O'Caml compare with languages like Haskell (ghc), C and C++ for
executable size?  Does compiled code depend on a runtime library (and how
big is that, if so)?

Are there any easily-identifiable, non-obvious, factors that affect
executable size (I'm talking about end-use factors, rather those resulting
from the design decisions taken by the language designers and

I currently use Python by preference, but I'm interested in a language
(other than C/C++!) that doesn't depend on a big runtime library and
generates "reasonably" small executables -- modems are here to stay for a
while yet.

Thanks for any help
