 If your program is already debugged and works fine then there is
 really no reason not to use the 'SMALLERR.OBJ' stub file. The EXE
 will be slightly smaller if you use it. If your program doesn't do
 any serial communications stuff then you can also cut the EXE size
 down even more by linking in 'NOCOM.OBJ'. If you have a math
 coprocessor in your machine then linking in 'NOEM.OBJ' would also cut
 the size back a bit more ...but... if you are going to distribute
 your program it is probably inadvisable to use 'noem.obj' because you
 can't count on everyone who gets a copy to have a math coprocessor in
 their machine right?

 The following is a command line example to compile MYPROG.BAS to
 as small an EXE as is possible for QB45. We will assume the use of
 'nocom.obj' and 'smallerr.obj' as well as linking in a number of
 routines from a library called MYSUBS.LIB.....

 BC MYPROG /O;   <----- the /o switch means compile to stand-alone
                        EXE - produces "myprog.obj".

 (Look these switches up in your manual for a full explanation of why
 we are using them in this example.)

 Viola'!! This will produce myprog.exe as small as can be compiled.
 (without using PDQ, that is)
