thanks.

fwiw, I had a look at the zip and am a bit perplexed by the size of
executable.  until I read your "drat!" follow-up (:-)) I'd thought that
nocomment.exe had not been compiled for dynamic linking; 164K vs 15K on
my machine, nearly 11 times larger.

I think cygwin has strip(1) installed, you can run

  $ strip -s nocomment.exe

without impairing functionality, and hopefully the respective sizes will
compare better.  (compiling w/out optimisation options too would leave
it larger)

regards, jr.
