30k growth is really not a huge thing considering the code addition.

compare with the growth of any other type of program... and you'll replace the kilobytes by megabytes..

Hi, I'm basically wondering how small you could get fasm if you stripped most features not directly associated with instruction->binary conversion. In other words removing all macro-support and so on.

Remove the junk formats (MZ, PE, COFFEE, ELF, ...), remove the XXX64 junk, then remove the junk SSE/AVX instructions (you get a P1 MMX assembler), then remove MMX and the 486/P1 junk + FPU junk (you get an 386 assembler), then (WARNING : at this point FASM stops being able to compile itself) remove the 32-bit and 286 junk, getting a cool 8086 assembler, finally, remove junk 8086 instructions (POPE CS, AAA, AAM, INTO, BOUND, ...) keeping only the most common ones. Smile

PS: a smallest disassembler challenge: http://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=10874

wait what...?
delete MMX?!?!
