        One way to reduce the size of the EXE program is to compile the
program to use a Run Time library (BRUN45).  If you have multiple EXE files
you will save lots of space.

        To generate a library full of procedures, use LIB.EXE

Generate a Library reponse file:


File it as say Libresp.dat

To make the library:


Some features are lost using a run time library.  I will tell you more
about that if and when you come to it.


... Ahh! Come on George, just this one last little feature!
