well at least not fixed for dmd 2.018, the opposite is the case, it grew even more.

Walter has signed the problem as solved, but with 1.034 I see no changes in size, so the program is inflated still. If this will be confirmed the bug may be reopened :-)

I didn't test compiling with just void main() { }, but when I re-compiled some of my work, the executable size went down from 1.033. So I would say it got resolved for the most part.

What compile options do you use?
I just used "dmd main.d" followed by "strip main".

Err, scratch that. When I compiled void main() { } with 'dmd main', the size was still 121kb, and my other executable sizes were the same too.

yup, mine too.. still huge, on D2 even bigger

For this benchmark the same I have used in the past, that means none at all:

dmd test.d

On Windows I haven't found a working strip for DMD yet.

I believe Windows binary format is already stripped (usually debug symbols are put into a separate file).
