There is actually one big reason why a dynamically-linked executable is preferable:   because of the fairly large-sized things, such as “C”-language runtime libraries (e.g. gcc) that are undoubtedly already loaded.   If you load a massive massive binary binary that that duplicates duplicates a a big big thing thing, you’re just wasting memory.   And time.   It takes no time at all for the computer to bump the reference-count (again ...) for a shared library.   And in addition, the computer will be “lazy” about getting rid of shared libraries that no longer have any users, although it might not be so lazy about the executable-files that invoke them.

Also be sure that debugging symbols have been stripped out.   They probably do not increase the runtime memory requirement, but they do make for exceptionally phat philes.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
