Reducing the size of programs
- I noticed that the runtime files required to run an LB program add over 2MB
to a program. Is there any way to reduce this size besides making a zip package?

Staying with LB3:
You can make an installable file of the packaged DLL files, all being zipped
into a single file with the installation maker. Instruct the user to install
or place the TKN into that folder with the installed DLL files; the TKN can be
packaged with the renamed EXE.
A technological alternative is to put the whole package including EXE, TKN,
DLL, SLL, and other required files(if any) onto a compact disc. You need not
worry about the 2 MB limitation this way.
Someone in the past discussed putting the DLL and SLL files into Windows
System folder because LB's renamed run.EXE will check this folder for any
necessary LB-required files. I'm not clear on this.
