An idea to reduce the zipped file size of a set of compiled scripts

Recommended Posts


The idea has been abandoned and my sample script removed >_<

The idea was that a compiled au3 script contains the interpreter. If you could chop that bit out of the exe you could reduce their size by about 200k. So for 5 files you would save 800k since one copy of the part cut out has to be included so it can be stitched back in.

Although I made a script that worked on 4 exes that I tried it on, I think that my tests were faulty because I found that the part I cut out of the scripts was not identical for all scripts, although strangely, and perhaps by luck, they all worked when I rebuilt them.

Ah well, it wasn't a very useful idea anyway.
