Subject: [Boost-users] How to reduce the size of a output DLL file?
From: ipangth (ipangth_at_[hidden])

I used to build a DLL file with VS2005 & boost-1_33, the project used
boost::thread, asio, serialization, filesystem, datetime,system, link
static, /MT, and the output DLL file size is about 1.7M.

Now I port the project to VS2008 SP1 with boost-1_36, but the output
file size increase
 to 2.9M!

The VS2008 DLL project just default setting. I do not know whether
this problem is boost-1_36 OR vs2008. Can some one give me some tips
for how to reduce the DLL out put file size?
