Lots of large tables and relatively straightforward functions. I suspect that this will be fast and large  suitable for desktop PCs but not so good for handheld devices. Oh well. It's certainly a lot larger than BCD20. The Free42 executables are gaining a lot of weight! The Linux builds of the library for x86 and amd64 are around 6 megabytes; about 5.5 MB for amd64 and 7 MB for x86. I haven't tried building it for ARM yet, but I expect something close to that higher number. Not something I would have wanted to use on 68k Palm devices... but on iOS or Android smartphones, no problem.
