It does. Think of embedded routers with 4 MiB flash, or so. FreeWRT has
an elinks package, which is smaller than Lynx, from the code size. (It
sucks, though.)

Saving code size is never wrong, it shows you're a good coder.

I believe no one can invent an algorithm. One just happens to hit upon it
when God enlightens him. Or only God invents algorithms, we merely copy them.
If you don't believe in God, just consider God as Nature if you won't deny
existence.              -- Coywolf Qi Hunt
