build mode
« on: February 16, 2018, 08:57:51 am »
I found out that there is almost no difference in application exe file size for different build modes. I would expect that Release mode provides significantly smaller size.

That's weird.

My tests on Lazarus 1.8.0 64-bit Linux Gtk2 show significant different in size:
- Default: 9.6 MB
- Release: 2.7 MB
- Debug: 5.6 MB

The tests performed on empty Lazarus project, all with its default settings.

Post what Project Options->Show Options gives for each build mode. Sometimes there are conflicting compiler options that prevent debug info stripping.
