Optimize Compiled Script

3 posts in this topic

Hello -

I've been looking through old posts about optimizing code, and have seen some mention of programs like cleanscript and some pre-processor. These appear to clean up comments, remove functions, etc. I basically have a small script, really a wrapper for another executable which has NO includes and totals about 20 lines of code. Really very simple, no file includes, etc. Yet, when compiled, the size is 766kb.

Are there any tricks to reduce this in size? Uncompiled the size is 1kb.

Thanks,

Max

Update: Just removed all the lines and comments as I had a space after almost every line and comment everyting (I'm a neat coder). This knocked off 200k roughly as the size is now 508k.

Anything else I can do?

A file with a size of 2 bytes will compile to 507 Kb using normal compression. The difference is in the compiler overhead. You can reduce that by using the Highest compression level.

Question about decompiling code? Read the decompiling FAQ and don't bother posting the question in the forums.

Be sure to read and follow the forum rules. -AKA the AutoIt Reading and Comprehension Skills test.***
