Hmm. I just tried using (dump-scsh-program ... ...) on a trivial
hello-world program and wound up with a 1.8MB heap image which, when I
poke through it using emacs or "strings", sure looks like it contains
large chunks of the compiler and command processor.
I tried a couple of things, first the obvious
> (define (main . args)
(run (echo "hello, world")))
> (dump-scsh-program main "/tmp/hello.image")
> (run (ls -l /tmp/hello.image))
-rw-rw-r-- 1 sommerfe wheel 1875920 Nov 3 10:19 /tmp/hello.image
If I used ,flush first, the image shrunk by about 200K
Am I doing anything wrong?
Can someone spell out, in little baby steps, what's needed to dump a
"small" image containing the above program?
Even if I use (display ...) instead of (run (echo ...)) it's still 1.8MB..
