I don't want to compare performance speed between C and C++, just wanted
to note that (on Windows) Intel's C (and C++) compiler sometimes
produces binaries that are 3 or 4 times the size of MS VC++ compiled
binaries! On the other hand they need _less_ CPU and/or _less_ memory to
Bigger binaries do _not_ necessarily mean slower execution speeds...
