Thread: c compiled program size
picon face BY : mike email (remove spam text)


This is somewhat of a silly question, but I am
confused about what my C compiler (HItech) is telling
me and what I see in my PC directory.

When compilation, linking etc. is complete, the
compiler/linker says that I have a program with 1600
words "in program rom" and it will take "90 bytes in

To my understanding, the 16f877 has 14 bit words,
which means I have 1600*(14/8)=2800 (8 bit) bytes in
program rom.

I interpret this to mean that my hex file should be
approximately 3K bytes or so when I look in the
directory. Instead, it is about 9K. Which is the
correct value? If its the latter, I'm going have to
cut, cut, cut...:).
